I grew up in Lashburn, SK.
I first started out in the ag industry in Lashburn, SK, working on a seed farm as a teenager.
What motivates me every day is being able to assist producers with their marketing decisions, helping them become more profitable while also reducing their stress level. I view the producers I work with not just as clients, but also as friends. The company is like a big family where everyone helps each other out.
My most memorable grain marketing experience was when a client needed to move some durum for cash flow purposes in the middle of a falling market. We were able to shop his durum around to end users that he didn’t know about and he was able to get $1/bu higher than the local bids!
Before joining FarmLink I worked for Pioneer Grain.
If I wasn’t a grain marketing advisor, I would probably still be working in the ag sector in some form, or possibly in construction.
I play sports and travel. I like visiting new places, both near and far.
Something you might not know about me is that like Cliff Claven from Cheers, I possess a lot of useless knowledge that is only good for trivia games.
