How did you get started in the business? – I started with the company about two and a half years ago as a field laborer. Since then, I was promoted to the company foreman and assist heavily with our marketing and advertising. Prior to starting with the company, I did have quite a bit of experience in this industry from working on a farm with my father and grandfather since I was about seven years old.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally? – The biggest challenge I’ve faced professionally is learning to communicate my vision of the best way to approach a project to other employees and customers. During my time as foreman for LDE, I’ve had the opportunity to hone those skills and be better equipped to provide that vision to our employees and customers.

What has been your most important achievement professionally? – I think my most important achievement so far would be being allowed to become a Foreman for this great company. It has provided so many life lessons and built skills I never thought I would learn in my lifetime.

What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life? – One of the biggest turning points I would say is accepting a job with Jake. I have worked many jobs in my life, from mechanics, to farming, to TV and Radio production and retail, but never could find exactly what I was looking for, and that caused a lot of financial stress. As well as not being happy in the positions that I was in. After starting with Jake, I have found a company that I am proud to work for, I enjoy coming into work, and work hard to help build and push the company towards our goals.

What is your favorite thing to do on a day off? – I have many hobbies, and I am not sure if I can narrow it down to one favorite thing, but I would say that traveling to new places, even if only 30 minutes away, is one of my favorites, as well as golfing any chance I get.

What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people don’t know? – I went to college for media, with a focus in radio broadcasting and video production. During that time, I had my own weekly radio show, provided LIVE Play by Play commentary for the University Volleyball team, started a small YouTube channel that I still run today, as well as made ads and short videos online. Media creation is something that I am highly passionate and never want to have to give up, and thanks to LDE and Jake, I can continue creating media for the company, and for myself every day.

If you could choose only one descriptive word to be remembered as, what would it be? – Passionate.
