After consulting to small insurance businesses, he was an applied mathematician on several national intelligence programs that required employees to hold an (above) Top Secret security clearance. In the 1970s, he earned a Master's degree in mathematics from Denver University and a Bachelor's degree (majoring in both mathematics and philosophy) from Metropolitan State College (now University) of Denver (Colorado).
