Hello. I’m Warren Parker. I care deeply about my faith, my family, agriculture, politics and a few other issues. I also love to travel with my wife and daughter. I grew up on a farm in south central Kansas. I had to leave the farm after college graduation because at the time, it couldn’t support another family. We kept our land, and now, I manage the farming operation with the family friends that farm it for us.
Away from the farm, I spent ten years in the media, working as a television reporter/photographer at a CBS affiliate station. I covered the state legislature and three national political conventions (Democrats & Republicans), worked on special projects for CBS News, and hosted a local television feature series. Following the journalism days, I lobbied on behalf of agriculture in Kansas and Washington, D.C., directed the communications and public relations division for a non-profit agricultural organization, and now direct web development and social media.
I appreciate all kinds of agriculture, and embrace them. However, in my travels to different parts of the world, and seeing complex political and geographical diversities, I have learned there is a need to feed that world, and a safe, modern agriculture that allows our food security, as well as trade with other nations, is required. I believe in true, science-based solutions, and have little patience for agenda-driven hype and emotion. I look forward to sharing views.
