Chris grew up on his family farm in northeastern North Dakota near the town of Crystal.  Helping out the small grains, sugar beets, and potatoes operation gave Chris a love of agriculture and respect of the land.  This carried over into college as he earned a B.S. and M.S. in Natural Resources Management emphasizing Soil Science from North Dakota State University. 

During Chris’ time at NDSU he became active and held leadership positions in many organizations.  During the spring of 2008 Chris moved to Carrington to work for the NDSU Extension Service as a Nutrient Management Specialist where he worked with farmers’ and ranchers’ fertility programs and consulted them on environmental issues.

Chris moved to Minot in March of 2012.  As Area Extension Specialist/Soil Health at North Central Research Extension Center he hopes to help farmers improve their soil resources.  Chris is excited to improve North Dakota’s soil by educating producers, technical service providers, and others on current and emerging soil management practices.
