He learned from his aunt and uncle about making dairy products such as butter, buttermilk and soft cheese curds. After graduating from the University of Texas in Austin as a Mechanical Engineer, he became invested in the food industry when he began working with his cousin, Dr. James C. Curry, owner of Custom Ingredients, Inc. of New Braunfels, who developed cheese formulations for shelf-stable products.
