Bio:  I have been director of network and audio services at the Illinois Farm Bureau since January, 2015.

As director, I am responsible for the management and administration of the RFD Radio Network. I also serve as an on-air personality, joining Alan Jarand and DeLoss Jahnke in producing and distributing more than a dozen programs each weekday for use by more than 80 Illinois radio stations.

Prior to my present position, I served as network anchor/broadcast editor with the RFD Illinois Radio Network since joining in December, 2011.

I was an award-winning farm broadcaster and 22-year employee with WSMI Radio in Litchfield, a major affiliate of the RFD Network. I also produced farm programming for soybean farmers for an ad-hoc network of stations, and produced the RFD Livestock Report under contract to IFB and the Illinois Livestock Development Group. I have been a voting member of the NAFB since January of 1990.

I am pleased to be running for the office of Vice President of the NAFB.  I believe I have the farm broadcast experience and the cooperative spirit that is called for in this years election.  My intentions are good and my mission would be clear, to serve the organization to the best of my ability.
