I graduated from California University of Pennsylvania with my Bachelor's of Science degree in Broadcast Meteorology in December of 2009. I completed my internship at WTOV-9 in Steubenville, OH the summer before. I enjoyed it, but not as much as I enjoy farming.
I've lived on a farm all my life and I'm the 6th generation in my family to work on our 96.6 acre farm in Southwestern Pennsylvania. We grow corn, soybeans, oats, wheat and alfalfa/timothy/smooth brome grass hay. Right now I'm the hay & wheat guy. I sell small square bales to folks who race horses. My main goal is to eventually get my own farm.
My fleet of equipment includes a 1979 White 2-105, a 1974 Oliver 1755, a 2004 NH 169 hay tedder, a 2006 Vicon Andex 653 double rotary rake, a 2006 NH 570 small square baler, and four Steel Gap Hill 18ft hay wagons.
Other than that I am a dedicated Green Bay Packers fan, West Virginia Mountaineer fan, Jeff Gordon fan, and Pittsburgh Pirates fan.
