I was a farm hand at Meadow Creek Alpaca Farm. As a farm hand, I was in charge of feeding the animals (Alpacas, Llamas, Chickens, Dogs and Cats), taking care of manure removal, and doing routine maintenance on all of the farm equipment and vehicles.

I worked for Latah County spraying weeds on rural roads, working on trucks, and doing maintenance on road signs for two years. During this job my coworker and I had hardly any supervision and had the chance to work fairly indepedantly.


Farm Hand

Josh Jones Farms

I was a farm hand for a local farm of the troy area named Josh Jones. My responsibilities included mowing, spraying weeds, picking rocks, fixing trucks, and we worked on building a steel grain silo.




Troy High School

I have been in the Troy school system since the first grade when my family moved to Troy from Spokane Washington. At troy I have had the opportunity to take many dual credit online classes to prepare me for college and my future career in information technology.

Dual Credit


Through the IDLA, CSI and NIC online programs I was able to take college-level classes that wouldn't normally be offered at the highschool level. 

Most of the classes that I took had to do with technology and computer science. I took IT fundamentals, Intro to programming in Java, Idaho Teen Game Lab, HTML and CSS, and Programming with Javascript.

Personal Education

Although there is a good selection of classes through IDLA and Troy's Dual Credit system there were some things that I took into my own hands to learn. In my spare time I have learned about Unix Systems (specifically Linux), Learning about Unix shell commands, Learning to optimize and configure Linux systems, Running Linux systems in virtual machines, Programming in Python, and learning about computer hardware through building custom computers.
