He attended Moorhead State University and later, the Colorado Graduate School of Banking. After college graduation, he worked in banking in Hallock, MN and Anita, IA. In 1976 he began employment with the Audubon State Bank in Iowa, and it was there that he met his love and best friend for life, Lori Weber.
