I was born and raised in Plain City, Utah but I spent my summers working on family farms in both Nephi and Mona. I have been in the welding industry for more than 7 years. I got my start in the welding field by working with a company to build gold and silver refineries. During that time I also started and ran my own welding and fabrication business. My wife and I also raise mini cows of varying breeds and love it. Somewhere along the line of working in a welding shop, I found that I wanted to be a welding and agriculture teacher so I went to Utah State University. I am really excited to be a teacher here at Juab High School.
