Hometown:

Parachute, Colorado

When did you start selling produce:

“I have just started however my father, Jim, started earlier this year”

What motivated you to do this:

To help raise some money for bills and to send my son to a school for the blind.

“We’re on the way to Texas. Work has slowed down in the oil fields. I work for A company called Adesco. It’s a pump company (like western pump) except we strictly run high pressure pumps.”

Impressions of Craig:

“I love the Craig area. My wife’s mom actually lived here for quite a while so we’ve come back and forth occasionally.”

Where has this trip taken you:

Vernal, Utah, Rangely and Craig. Then back to Parachute and Grand Junction.

Song or musical genre you never tire of:

“I’m a big country fan. I never get tired of country.”

Favorite movie:

“That’s a hard one. Movies have kind of slacked off lately.”

Pet peeve:

Wastefulness

Proudest accomplishment:

“My son, Landon”

Most embarrassing moment:

“Probably when I was kid in the swimming pool and my shorts fell off. That’s probably the most embarrassing.”
