He was trained as a heavy equipment mechanic in the Air Force and studied hydraulics, both as a mechanic and firefighter engineer at Picture Rocks Fire Department. He currently is retired from the City of Tucson as Safety and Environmental Coordinator and volunteers his time at the Oracle Community Learning Garden as the composting guru and irrigation consultant.
