I grew up on a farm in Central Kentucky, getting my degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Kentucky in 2003. I started my career as a cross country merchandiser covered the Southeast truck market as well as the Midwestern rail markets. In 2012 I transitioned into more of an advisory role, continuing working with growers as a cash grain broker and hedger. I enjoy helping producers maximize revenue through timely sales and sharing an in-depth understanding of basis and what impacts the cash market.
I grew up on a potato farm in Central Michigan. Unlike most I did not go to school to be in agriculture. I got lucky when it came to my big break, getting the opportunity to learn the business from a cash grain merchandiser. I took the position of Vice President of Grain for Citizens Elevator in 2011, where I managed 5 elevator locations and built a state-of-the-art direct ship program. My passion is helping growers understand how folks make decisions at the elevator level and how that knowledge can be used to benefit them on the farm.
