Junior in agricultural business, minor in agronomy,
I was born and raised on a cattle and row crop family farm operation. We currently farm in the midwest of Brazil about 482 miles northwest from where I was born, in the largest producing state of corn, soybeans and cotton in the country. It was on that operation that I realized my passion for agriculture and future career.

Career Goal: After working for a company for a couple of years, I want to go back to our family farm in Brazil and start a cattle feed business.
