I am currently located in North Dakota but open to relocating for the right opportunity. After managing an Angus seedstock outfit in Montana for four years, I moved back to California to be closer to family after having my daughter. Worked in construction as the company Foreman for the last few years but unfortunately the business went under. I have since relocated to North Dakota after being recruited to work on oil equipment fleets as the main mechanic and shop manager for an oil company. I make a very great income with excellent benefits, so I won’t be itching to leave. That said, I am always on the hunt to get back into ranching if the right opportunity comes along. I can do a variety of tasks and go from one extreme to another. I grew up working on a local operation in my hometown in California and watched them take off to be one of the most successful ranches in the entire state for all natural beef production and now the largest land owners. With that said, I understand the importance, profession, and pride in maintaining a good flowing operation and the duties that come with that in the industry. I am very open minded and willing to consider all aspects of employment.

My strong suits are in ranch management and I am highly qualified in mechanics and equipment operations. I can cowboy and be on horseback all day then go to sitting in a tractor all day. I’ve been very blessed and have had some amazing mentors while growing up that have furthered my abilities and skills in the ranching world, as well as in laboring skills and miscellaneous jobs. Coming from supervisor, foreman, and upper management positions, I do my absolute best in being a team leader and communicating with my crews each and every day to ensure proper performance and job completeness. Having the responsibilities in those positions I have acquired a “no nonsense” attitude to know what needs to be done and effectively relaying that to my crews, resulting in deadlines being met and top performance in a job well done. Working promptly but also professionally. I think it is just as important to lead intentionally and set the tone, so I am right there working feet on the ground as well. I don’t justify a position or tittle from ever having to get your hands dirty. I do not limit myself to one set task, I want to be as diversified as I can be and always willing to learn what I do not know. If I am unsure about something, I will not portray that I do know. I will ask for guidance and direction. I am the guy that you only have to show and direct one time and then I am good to go. I consider myself to be a self starter and have no problem getting things done independently, as long as I have a general idea of what you need and want done. I can be entrusted with simple directions and you do not have to worry if the job is going to get done. One thing that I cannot do is read minds, so if there is no open communication I will not be able to satisfy your needs without knowing your expectations. I love transparency, and as long as you are winning in that department than so am I. I would like nothing more than to become part of a thriving operation and be able to provide my skill set and also learn more. I am looking for something long term, a place to plant roots, and would be even more intrigued if there were additional opportunities that came with the employment. I do have experience in horse training and starting colts. While working in Montana I had the opportunity to work with some brilliant trainers out of New Zealand. I really expanded my knowledge from the ground up with what they had to offer. I can do field work, irrigation, pivots, and haying. I am handy in and out of the chutes with cattle. On ground, ATV, and horseback. I can preg check and have done AI (I am not certified). I can pull and reposition calves when needed. I would work the entire calving season doing night calving in Montana in freezing temperatures and ensure the mommas and babies were brought in when needed. It was very rare that any calves were lost on my watch, and in the event of a sick or cold calf they would come into the warm room where I would tend to them until they were back on their feet. Also assisting with tube feeding and bottle feeding when necessary, and if it did happen, I would perform hide grafts and do calf to cow transfers. Working all night during calving season I would still get up and start the rest of the work day on the ranch and do it all over again being the only guy. I also have experience with sheep herds.

I am an open book and have my resume and references readily available. I am the sole provider for my household. I consider my skills to be favorably competitive, so I will not relocate for something that financially doesn’t make sense for my family. I am in pursuit of a career path with advancements not just a job or turnover ranch work. I am interested in longevity at the right place, price, and right opportunities. My resume speaks for itself, but my work ethic and performance outdoes my abilities perceived on paper any day of the week. I am pretty vested in my career now, but as I said above- if the right opportunity were to come along I would like nothing more than to take it.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and if it sounds fitting I would like to connect with you. I have more qualifications with cattle and ranching that I did not list but would be more than happy to discuss over the phone or provide by resume. My phone reception can be spotty at times but I check my email daily.
