Biographical Information

I grew up on a diversified registered Holstein Dairy operation in McMinnville, Tennessee. We raised beef cattle, alfalfa, tobacco and grains. I was very active showing cattle and in 4-H and FFA throughout high school. I attended the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and majored in Animal Science with a minor in Ag Economics and graduated in 2002. I returned home to work on the farm then moved to West Tennessee to work as fieldman for a cooperative. I met my wife in Paris, Tennessee and we started building our own beef cattle operation and began our own row crop operation and custom hay harvest. I then had the opportunity to manage a facility in Murray, Kentucky for Nutrien Ag Solutions. The opportunities and knowledge gained that working for a cooperative and a large input supplier were invaluable. In 2021, my lifelong goal came true. My father-in-law had decided to retire thus allowing me to come home to farm full time with my family. It is my hope to continue the legacy so that my son, Luke, can have the same opportunities to farm and ranch in the future. My wife of 15 years, Kris has supported the operation with off farm income as an Inventory manager with a local cooperative for over 20 years. Kris and I, along with our son, Luke, live in Paris, Tennessee on our family farm.

Why do you want to serve on the Farm Credit Mid-America Board?

I would like to continue to serve on the Board of Directors to help preserve the Farm Credit Association for our members and stockholders. Farm Credit has always remained a vital part of my family’s and my success to build and grow our operation. It has been both a privilege and honor to serve my first term representing our owner customers interests. The association has many challenges that it faces from a lending and risk environment with the current economy. Since the merger with Farm Credit Midsouth and the hiring of a new CEO, the board needs experience during the challenging times that we are facing with volatility and rising interest rates. It is my wish to continue with support to maintain a diversified portfolio and competitive rate for our stockholders and challenge management to ensure the future of the success of Farm Credit and its members.
