At high school in Pennsylvania he got into producing and managing local Hip Hop acts in the area. After graduation, he enrolled in the Art Institute of Pittsburgh for Video Production where he completed a semester. His love of music kept him in close contact with musical acts and he eventually got into the business of putting on festivals at Slippery Rock Dunes.
