  • What is your "why"? Why do you do what you do?
    If life hits an individual or a business really hard, it could lead to financial ruin. I am obsessed with making sure that people have the right coverage for just those moments. Proper insurance is the bedrock of a solid financial plan, and I do all I can to ensure my clients have that. To me, protecting people's assets, their businesses, their person, and their livelihoods is the most important work I can do.
  • About me
    I am the father of three handsome boys. I am an entrepreneur at heart and in practice (own and have previously owned several businesses). I love the insurance business. Protecting individuals and business is what I professionally Iive and breathe. I love a good taco (but not Tex-Mex), a glass of great single malt, a superb business book, a challenging crossword puzzle, and a lively networking event. Fluent in Spanish and I dabble in French (I know about 5 or 6 words). I enjoyed teaching, coaching and mentoring young and/or new Insurance professionals.
