He then moved to Orizaba and worked as a laborer. He was described as an introverted and serious person. His hobbies included going to the gym, driving race cars, painting, music and lucha libre. As a professional wrestler, he owned ´Discos Audaz´ where he produced his own vinyl records of tropical music. “El Corrido del Audaz”, “Quisiera ser” and “Despacio” were his most iconic songs.
