Soon after graduating Donny started working with his step-father at Direct Forest Products in the hardwood lumber industry.

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.
