He is still active in minerals management and consulting through that company.

In 1992, Preston joined his family’s business and became president in 1998. Preston attended the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma City University. He is a Certified Professional Landman, a member of numerous oil and gas associations, and has served on a number of boards.
