Farming background

In 2014 I spent three months on a grass seed harvest in Harrisburg Oregon. There my position was to cut all the fields into wind rows pre harvest. During the harvest i was driving a John Deere 9500 combine. Post harvest I plowed all the fields with a tractor and plowing implement. My time on this harvest gave me a good understanding of the harvesting process, it also gave me experience and confidence in operating large machinery. Other farming experience I have is working Kooyong Vineyard in the Mornington peninsular reagan in Victoria Australia, here I helped out with the grape harvest for wine making. I was part of a team who in the winter time pruned and maintained each individual plant in preparation for harvest. In the summer time we worked long hard hours to get all the fruit off the vines while it was perfectly ripe. My time on this harvest gave me a great understanding of the whole process of growing grapes how different types of grapes are treated differently to ultimately created different categories of wine.

Hobbies

Out side of work I have developed an interest in film photography and enjoy spending weekends shooting photos of buildings and landscapes. I'm also a keen musician and enjoy listening to and playing music.
