Diego holds a Master's degree in Opera and Voice Performance degree from McGill University in Montreal, Canada where he studied under tenor John Mac Master, and was the recipient of the Shapiro Opera Scholarship and Graduate Excellence Fellowship. He started his formal vocal training with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance at the University of North Texas under soprano Molly Fillmore, where he had the opportunity in his final year of participating in a masterclass with renowned tenor Stephen Costello. During his training as a young artist, he has also been able to be a part of masterclasses with singing artists such as Karen Slack and Barrington Lee, as well as acclaimed conductors and pianists like Tony Manoli and Michael McMahon.
