The skills acquired in completing those tasks successfully positions him perfectly to assist his office in troubleshooting and problem solving any issues that may arise.

In his spare time, Gus has a hobby of restoring and renovating townhouses and homes. He currently lives in one that he restored himself.

He also likes to build things with his hands and carpentry, he gets satisfaction from accomplishing something and seeing the final results. Outside of that hobby, Gus also enjoys biking, going to the beach, swimming, and dancing. He especially likes to bike through trails in Upper Manhattan and up and down the West Side Highway and the Hudson.
