I would like to think that I am the fuel pump that keeps every cylinder firing in this well-oiled machine. As owner and editor of two magazines, I spend a lot of time in my mobile office visiting with the pioneers and people involved in the farm equipment industry. If you had told me ten years ago that I would own a publishing company, two magazines, and have a staff, I would have laughed at you! But I have been blessed with them all and can’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing… except flying!
I grew up in a small town in south central Illinois. While I don’t personally know a lot about tractors, I did grow up around farming and definitely have a great appreciation and respect for the industry. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Mass Communications from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and then married my husband, Lucas, on a Colorado mountaintop. We now have 2 beautiful little girls who keep us very busy. I work with Sherry in the Greenville office as the Office Manager. If you call the office, I will usually be the one you’ll talk to first. Some of my primary duties include handling customer service, subscription inquiries and data, merchandise orders, and shipping. I've learned a lot in the years that I've worked here and love how passionate our customers are about what we do. Our subscribers are the best!
I have been a designer now for around 23 years. Realistically, I cannot imagine doing anything else. I love the challenges and the endless creative possibilities I have with a blank canvas and to create something that has never been seen before take shape. Unrealistically though, when I grow up I’d still like to be a Rock Star, but for now being a designer is a pretty good gig! I am passionate about what I do and I am one blessed guy!
I photograph tractors and that's mostly all my camera is used for.
I will meet up with the owner/collectors & we will try to come up
with ideas that would make for interesting or unique pictures. It's definitely a real joint effort. Without their enthusiastic
help, I could not pull this off. Thanks go to everyone involved
who make it all happen!
I’m a Greenville native, born and raised here in our small community. My parents didn’t farm for a living, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t learn an appreciation for the industry from a young age. I grew up as a “country kid” spending most of my time outdoors. After high school, I went to college in Southern Illinois and studied graphic design. I moved back to Greenville and married my husband, Clayton. We have a clever and feisty 2-year old son who keeps us constantly entertained! As the Creative Director, I’ll be working to maintain an active presence on our social media sites, manage magazine content, coordinate events, offer editorial assistance, and spread the word about how awesome our tractor magazines are!
