Growing up in rural Idaho gave me an appreciation for rural America. Both sides of my family have farmed and ranched as long as I can remember, and I’ve spent time doing farming contract work in the Dakotas, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska, before I transitioned into the world of business and insurance, which took me to Cheyenne, Wyoming, and Fort Collins, Colorado.
My love of new experiences and traveling to new places began when I was in high school. I was an exchange student and toured around central Europe, including Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, and more.
After graduating from the University of Wyoming with a degree in the field of agriculture business management, I saw an ad for a position at the Center and felt like it’d be the perfect fit for me, as well as an exciting new adventure. I currently live in Lincoln, Nebraska, and when I’m not working, I spend as much time as possible with my wife and daughter.
