He later worked as a disc jockey, club manager, booking agent, artist manager, and merchandising manager. For more than 11 years, he worked at Manitoba Film and Music, helping to bring such events to Winnipeg as the Juno Awards, Canadian Country Music Awards, BreakOut West, Grey Cup, Manitoba Homecoming 2010, and Culture Days.
