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: The Blacklist (for the moment)
Weapon of Choice: Canon XF305 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” these days, but “Mom” to Gracen and “Wife” to Wade are my favorites. A lot has changed since we started on this adventure, but this remains: I’d want nothing less than to be partnered with the same person serving the same people we have since the beginning through this business. 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)
I grew up showing various breeds of cattle and loved every minute of it. Now, the only thing that trumps the memories of my banners won is to see cattle that I have raised being fed and shown with success at any caliber of livestock shows across the South.
I’m a husband to the best wife around (Ashley) and father to a beautiful little girl (Morgan), both who make the world go around.
There is nothing more relieving at the end of stressful day than a good cigar!
Favorite Book: It changes every day, but mostly livestock publications that fill the mailbox.
Weapon of Choice: It’s got to be my iPhone.
