About Me

Charlie and me at Mahogany Bay Ranch

I moved to Missouri with my parents and twin brother when I was twelve from Sacramento, California. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life when I moved here, nor did I have any friends. My first friend I made was a girl from Seymour, Missouri who grew up on a dairy farm. I followed in her path when she joined FFA, and that is where that first spark of my love of agriculture came from. Through FFA I came to appreciate the agriculturalists who came before me and the ones I was growing up with in the present. I competed on several career development events as well as served in multiple leadership positions.I also learned throughout my high school years the importance of balancing work, family, and friends. I am a very busy person with practically no free time, so it is always a challenge to perfectly balance the three. One of the most important lessons my mom taught me was that God comes first, people come second, everything else third.

I have declared my major at Missouri State University as agricultural communications because I want to spread the word and let everyone know the good news of agriculture as well as learn how to perfect my strategy in this crazy balancing act I call my life.

Follow The Thaasophobic Compadre to watch me balance the things that are important to me: God, family and friends, work, and agriculture.
