His education continued at Texas Tech University earning him a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Economics in 1978.
In 1979 he began a career as a commodity broker. Upon completion of training in Denver, CO, he moved to Amarillo joining the newly established firm, Amarillo Brokerage. He became a partner of the firm in 1983, and in 1999 he assumed the position of the Managing Partner. He held that title until his retirement in 2015.
