I am an Associate Professor of Animal Science and Agricultural Education at NCTA and Professor of Practice in these areas at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.  I coach and travel with our livestock judging team throughout the year.

I strive to instill the values of hard work, determination, and willingness to learn in each of my students.

I enjoy spending time with my wife and son as we evaluate, raise, and exhibit livestock.
