Well shoot, I’m honored you found your way to my website. Click around to find some of my work and a resume. I recently finished up my M.S. at Colorado State University in Agricultural Economics where my thesis research focused on the use of conservation practices as a drought response tool for grazing lands. I modeled the expected increase in conservation practices we can expect after severe drought events across the U.S.

Broadly, my research and applied work is centered around the intersection of economics, rangeland/ranch management, and climate adaptation. I have lived and worked on various sheep and cattle ranches around the intermountain west, learning the challenges and beauty of ranching in the West. Additionally, I have experience working with government and private grazing land leases, federal conservation programs, mathematical optimization, GIS mapping, enterprise analysis, intensive grazing management, and direct marketing. I believe that through thoughtful empirics, intentional conversations, and a willingness to innovate, we can make a profitable and sustainable future for conservation-minded ranching in the American West.
