Having had an interest in the magical arts from childhood, Ralph's first job was behind the counter at a local magic shop. Thinking outside the box, he funded much of his college education performing his magical skills on stage. Years later, he still entertains friends and family with magic. Ralph also brews his own beers (he loves a good India Pale Ale) and gets his exercise on the golf course.
