Born and raised on a wheat farm on the beautiful Camas Prairie of Idaho near the town site of Winona. After graduating from the University of Idaho in 2011 with a degree in Environmental Science and a minor in anthropology, I went to work in the grain industry for Columbia Grain for 8 years where I sharpened my teeth mainly in the PNW with a short stint in the heart of wheat country in Montana. I was able to learn all about global grain movements while specializing in grain origination, marketing and logistics with the last 4 of those years trading specialty commodities of barley’s, canola, Austrian winter peas and pulse seed. I love the outdoors and my amazing wife and I try our best to experience and enjoy it as frequent as possible, when we’re not helping on the farm or doing another home improvement project.
