I am not an Idaho native, but I have worked hard to stake my claim as one. I grew up in the Treasure Valley hunting, fishing, camping and riding horses. My wife Chyla and I have been back in the Treasure Valley for the past three years after getting our bachelor's degrees at the University of Idaho. We have our two horses that we endurance race, two bird hunting dogs, and two cats. I have worked hard to keep roots in the Ag industry as an agronomist, walking fields and working with farmers on their crop quality and yield potential. I have had the opportunity to spend time in the Idaho Farm Bureau Federation on the Latah County FB board during my time at the University of Idaho with the Collegiate Farm Bureau chapter, and the Ada County FB board as the Young Farmer & Rancher chairman for the past two years. I have had a blast volunteering in the Idaho Farm Bureau Federation, and I look forward to the opportunities that will come as I begin my career with Idaho Farm Bureau Insurance!
