I am a sixth generation full time rancher. I have a B.S. in Animal Science from Texas A&M University. After graduation I married my wife Emily and we moved to Doole Texas to farm and ranch. We now have two boys Levin and Waylon. Together with my father, David, we operate Whitworth Ranch and raise Kensing Spanish Goats. Robert Kensing is my great uncle and we are proud to continue the legacy he started. We also raise cattle and sheep and farm cotton and wheat. I am committed to preserving the Spanish Goat and believe we can do so with a member run association.

I’ve lived in the Lowcountry of South Carolina most of my life, born into a proud military family.  I was raised with a strong work ethic and integrity which influenced my career. With more than twenty years of executive experience I retired as Vice President of E-H Enterprises. 

After retiring, I began raising goats and was intrigued by the Spanish Goat Breed. I own Bama Spanish Goats, and am passionately committed to raising and preserving the Spanish Goat breed as well as serving the ASGA members for many years to come.

I was raised in Stonewall, Texas on Weinheimer Ranch where we raise foundation spanish goats, cattle and sheep. I grew up on the ranch helping with the daily livestock operations, and still continue to be present on the ranch with my family. I have a B.S. and M.S. in Animal Science from Texas A&M University and Angelo State University, respectively. I have worked for an AgTech company since 2018. I am excited to be a part of the ASGA where I will serve the membership and uphold the mission of the association.
