Upon graduation, he pursued a career in public education as a bilingual elementary school teacher, while also continuing to work with horses as a Ferrier. In 2011, he decided to focus solely on his horseshoeing and hay sales businesses, further exposing him to a wide variety of farms and ranches throughout Central Texas.
