Knoxville, Tennessee

I'm a University of Tennessee undergraduate student interested in learning about the conservation of our natural resources and endangered species around the world. I am studying wildlife and fisheries science in hopes to get an internship with an agency to gain more hands on experience. I am an experienced outdoorsman growing up hunting, fishing, and trapping on my grandparents 100 acre farm. I'm a hard worker who knows what it takes to acheive the goals I have set for myself.

Throughout my life I have acquired various skills from the jobs I have worked. My first job was working on a peanut farm in Stoney Creek, Virginia. I operated combines, tractors, 18 wheelers, and trucks of all sizes. After working on the farm I started working for an electrical contracting company called "Frazier Electric", I worked there two years installing recepticals, switches, and light fixtures in houses and apartments. The job I most recently worked at was for the city of Colonial Heights, Virginia school board. I worked in the maintanence department during the summer mowing grass, weed-eating, operating tractors, and fixing broken machine parts. The experience I have allows me to work with many different kinds of people.
