Like so many other non-native residents, he came to El Paso by way of the US Army, back in the mid-1970’s. After being honorably discharged, he decided to make El Paso his home because, as he states, “I just fell in love with this oasis in the desert.”
Upon departing the military, he began selling insurance for a local agency, and half a year later he was promoted to General Agent, running his own insurance agency in the then ABC Bank in downtown El Paso. Although he enjoyed a great deal of financial success in that industry, he left because of a desire to pursue other opportunities.
