He graduated from Fresno High School and went to UCSB, then to UCB where he graduated with a BA in Economics. Following his degree from UCB he obtained a law degree from University of Loyola at Los Angeles School of Law. After passing the bar in 1975 he practiced law in various corporations and firms in LA. He returned to Fresno with his family in the latter part of 1986. While he was looking for a new legal position, he helped out at Louie foods allowing his parents to take a long well-deserved vacation. Before finding a new position, his father’s illness necessitated his taking over the business and has been there since.
