Howdy! I am a PhD candidate in Animal Sciences with an emphasis in Engineering. I grew up raising market barrows, steers, and heifers, while starting two businesses (one in freelance marketing and another in online animal traceability). I have also worked with top Brahman breeders from around the United States so as to gain national and international industry insight. I have two bachelor's degrees in Animal Sciences and Ag communications & Journalism and a master's degree in Ag Communications & Journalism with an emphasis in Human-Computer Interaction. Through my many endeavors I have gained valuable knowledge in both agriculture and the business world.
