Some people call me the founder of the feast, the guy with the big idea, or, as most of my customers call me – “weird tech guy.” I started out on a small ranch where cattle grow on limestone rock and goat weed. I went to the greatest university in the world, Texas A&M, where I thought I was pursuing a career in Meat Science. A very long story later, I found my niche in the video productions and auction broadcast sector and IDEAL was born. It has been a wild ride so far, and I don’t expect to slow it down any time soon.
I love audio books. You ride with me, you have to listen as well. It’s part of the roadtrip.
Finding new places to eat on the road are the best treats. The dive-ier, the better.
Favorite Movie: Every movie is better than the last. I love quote wars on the classics – both cult and otherwise – text me and let’s battle, meow!
Favorite TV Show: Franklin & Bash (for the moment)
Weapon of Choice: Canon XF300 atop a Manfrotto 3-legged statue
The jack of all trades here, master of none. Where to begin? I have degrees in Agri-Business and Marketing. I am an Aggie and native Texan. I wear a lot of “hats” here: cat-herder, Wade-wrangler, correspondence queen, bill payer, invoice stickler, the only non-ADD team member, but most importantly, video editor. I’m our wizard behind turning the art of livestock videos into a finished, viewable marketing piece. Things are never dull around here, and if you promise not to tell anyone, I really like it that way.
I take on the accent of anyone I spend an extended amount of time with. I can’t control it. I don’t even know it’s happening until Wade points it out.
Favorite Movie: Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken (once a horse-crazy 7 year old, always one)
Favorite TV Show: I am the reason Hulu is even in business…I can’t choose
Weapon of Choice: My 27” iMac (nerd alert)
Don’t let the big hair fool you – this “Texan” was actually born and raised in Pennsylvania. Growing up on a small farm, livestock judging, showing, and more livestock judging (and winning national championships) gave me my love for agriculture and livestock. Also an Aggie, I gained connections that not only fueled my career, but also introduced me to my husband. My childhood dream was to be a professional photographer – so I’ve “made” it. It is 100% true that if you love your job, you will never work a day in your life.
My eyes are the color of newborn-calf poop – seriously. Take a look, I don’t mind.
The first time I showed a lamb without any help or a halter, I was the ripe, old age of 3.
Favorite Book: Whatever livestock magazine is in my mailbox. Oh, and The Hunger Games. Go ahead, judge me.
Weapon of Choice: Nikon d700 (also known as my baby)
