Drew School of Medicine and Biological Sciences, and earned his California licensure as a Medical Laboratory Technologist. He was later employed by the County of Los Angeles, as a Blood Bank Technologist, at the newly opened Martin Luther King Jr. Medical Center in 1979. He ultimately decided to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a dentist.
