He won the silver medal at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships four times and twice captured the silver at the World Figure Skating Championships. He also competed at the 1960 Winter Olympics. In 1961, he earned another berth to the World Championships but did not make the trip due to illness, a move that was fortunate for him, as the entire U.S. Figure Skating team was killed en route to the competition when Sabena Flight 548 crashed near Brussels.
