But, his love for the classics, the Corvette, Mustang, and Gremlin, drove him to study to become a Mechanical Engineer. Also, being a teenager and not having a clue about what he wanted to be when he grew up played a huge part in that decision. His newest challenge is working on his first novel, a sci-fi adventure about a futuristic musician, who gets stranded on an alien planet while trying to make his way from an outpost of Pluto back to Earth.
