I grew up on a family farm north of Pasco Washington where my family grew alfalfa, corn wheat and potatoes. Some of my hobbies include playing games with family and friends, mountain biking, snow skiing, building new things from scratch and repairing anything that I can. After school I worked as a mechanic on ag tractors and ag equipment. I then repaired dump trucks and loaders. I returned to school and received a bachelor and master’s degree in ag systems technology from Utah State University. My master’s thesis focused on auto guidance usage and barriers to entry among farmers. Then worked as an ag researcher and researched organic fertility in many different crops. After being a researcher, I worked as a GPS sales and service representative for agriculture applications. I have always loved to teach people and look forward to teaching students new skills they can use to better their farms and community.
