Soon after graduating Donny started working with his step-father at Direct Forest Products in the hardwood lumber industry. He enjoyed working in the hardwood industry and was currently employed at Balsam Mill Works in New Richmond.
On the weekends Donny was able to fulfill his true passion and do what he really loved. That passion was singing in a rock band and Donny was the lead singer of Maximum Dosage a local rock band.
