He attended college in Brussels, Belgium where he obtained a physics degree in 1978. He moved to Austin shortly thereafter to attend a graduate program at UT, then went on to found several successful businesses, including CCMP Solar, MetalOptics, The Rowing Dock, and Castle Hill Specialized Fitness.
