Over the course of the past several years, I have shown cattle in several states including WV, OH, PA, and MD. I have shown cattle for the past 12 years. I have been in 4H and FFA for all my life. I have been a member of the WVU Livestock Judging Team. I have participated in judgings at the North American International Livestock Expo, Keystone International Livestock Expo, Eastern National Livestock Expo. I have also judged and help with our county 4H Livestock Judging team. I plan to continue my education with a Masters in Agriculture, specializing in Ag-law and extension beef programs.

I live on our family farm and help manage our family cow/calf operation. We raise Shorthorn, Maines and Angus show cattle. I have a good eye for cattle and other livestock. I enjoy working with young people and helping to teach them about the farm industry.

While showing I have won several awards for both showmanship and for showing cattle. I was also chosen as the West Virginia State Young Farmer in 2005. I take great pride in the livestock industry and want to see the young people of today continue to succeed in it. I place a great emphasis on sportsmanship, and the effort the exhibitor puts forth to prepare and present their project. I strive to see every exhibitor enter and exit the show ring with confidence and enthusiasm in what they are doing.

I am willing to travel to just about anywhere for a small fee( gas, hotel, etc.). Please feel free to contact me.
