Baz served as Technical Director/Scene Shop Supervisor for California State University: East Bay for five years. He enjoyed the interesting challenges associated with working with a diverse group of students fulfilling the roles of builders and designers for the first time. In his capacity as Technical Director he drafted build drawings for student builders to create and taught the students in stage crafting techniques. He also advised students in property management and painting techniques. He was responsible for leading the student build crews to ensure the set was created, painted, and installed in a safe and timely manner. As the Scene Shop Supervisor he maintained the tools in the shop and was in the continual process of cataloging and documenting stock scenic elements as well as the extensive property storage. He was also actively involved with teaching safe working practices, and has training in Theatre Fall Protection and as well as OSHA regulations.

During the pandemic, Baz graduated from Ohio University with an MFA in Technical Direction, with careful study under Tom Fiocchi's tutelage in the Prop Shop.

He is currently employed near the Maryland/Delaware border.
