While moving massive logs, Bonn learned rigging, cables and leverage systems from the old timers. He used this knowledge while employed at a crane company and was soon designing hydraulic and pneumatic equipment.
Bonn also practiced stock car racing which lead into performing in car commercials and precision driving gigs. He eventually combined the two and began designing ratchets for cars to be used in the film industry particularly for stunts. Using his knowledge of ratchets and cable rigging, he began to coordinate the stunts for shows such as Smallville, Scary Movie and many more.
