They moved to Ione, CA where he graduated from Ione High School in 1982. He attended college courses in Stockton, CA majoring in calculus, economics and business where he developed a lifelong interest in the stock markets. At the age of 21 he built his first spec house in Folsom, CA where his career in construction began.
