Bio:  NAFB has been an important part of my adult life. Being recognized as a recipient of the Horizon Award let me know I was on the right professional path as a young broadcaster; I also am incredibly proud of the awards from our association recognizing the quality of our news and market coverage. Most importantly, though, I am thankful for the friends and mentors I’ve met through this incredible organization.

After spending nearly a decade in radio at WRFD-AM, the Buckeye Ag Radio Network, and the Agri Broadcast Network, today I put my journalistic talents to use via three Farm Progress podcasts including Feedstuffs In Focus, Feedstuffs Precision Pork, and Food Chain Chats. I also am co-host of the Feedstuffs 365 live stream channel, where I host multiple interviews with feed and livestock industry leaders and newsmakers each week. Additionally, I co-anchor a weekly agriculture television segment on Spectrum News 1 in Columbus, Ohio.

With 20 years of radio, television, and digital broadcast experience under my belt, I have a deep understanding of our industry and a great passion for our professional organization. It would be an honor and privilege to “pay it forward” through service on the NAFB board.
