He began with clarinet at age 10, eventually earning straight blue ribbons in  state and county clarinet competitions playing Brahms and Mozart – and moved to jazz saxophone in  high school, prompted by his band director, Joan Rackey of Albert Einstein HS. He worked his way up to  soloing with the Jazz Academy of Music and was first chair alto in the Maryland All‐State Jazz Band. Theo began working on the DC music scene at age 16, primarily as a sideman, performing regularly at  Columbia Station and Twins.

He has also played with musicians including Ingrid Jensen, Javon Jackson, Warren  Wolf, Tim Green, Antonio Hart, and Billy Hart.
