He worked for several years at the Guitar Center in Glen Burnie, managing the pro-audio and lighting departments, and earned the James Brown Award for being the “Hardest Working Man” in the store. He also worked part-time as the “technical wizard” for Tommy Gatz Entertainment in Annapolis. Audio recording and editing was his passion.
In recent years, he applied his technical skills to the boating industry, working as a Marine Technician at Cypress Creek Marine in Severna Park, and most recently at Sassafras Harbor Marina in Georgetown, MD. Two years ago he finally acquired his own sailboat and was learning the art of sailing.

In Addition to music and sailing, he also enjoyed keeping tropical fish, playing video games, and was a huge Orioles fan. But most of all, he loved being a Dad!
