His career has included working at a zoo, a box office, Bath and Body Works, 5 different Blockbuster locations, a UPS warehouse, and a convenience store. He has been a custodian, a valet, a telemarketer, a graphic designer, a maintenance man, a copywriter, a radio host, a cashier, and a luggage salesman, among other things.
