About our guest
As the head of department in farrowing at Peters Creek Sow Farm for Murphy Family Ventures, I have found a passion for an industry and career that I otherwise would have never stumbled upon previously. I was only first introduced to the pork industry in the spring of 2020. Now, I find myself gaining more experience daily while aiming to see the industry succeed in an ever-changing world. After being selected as the 2023 NC Pork Council Emerging Leader, I hope to spark a desire in others within our industry and look forward to the years to come. Outside of work, I enjoy quality time with my wife and son, tending to my goats and dogs, catching up with family and friends, all while trying to stay active in some of my favorite hobbies such as hunting, fishing, and golfing.
