I’ve spent my lifetime in Agricultural Education with a focus of hands-on experiential learning. That is what drew me to NCTA. After 24 years in the high school agriculture classroom, I served as the State FFA Advisor in Kansas before moving to Indianapolis Indiana to work for the National FFA Organization. Prior to coming to NCTA, I spent a year serving as the Nebraska State FFA Advisor.

I enjoy reading and spending time with my wife Fay. We have a daughter in Springfield, Missouri, and our son and his family live in Beaverton, Oregon. We also have a godson in Kansas City, Missouri.
