A graduate of Emory University, he earned his master’s degree in business administration from Boston University. In 1986, he earned his certification as a gemologist appraiser from the American Gem Society. He has served on various boards and committees in the gem and jewelry industry. He lives in Princeton with wife, Lisette, and has two sons, Andrew and Benjamin.
