Thanks for visiting my site! I am a Northern California native and have lived in Marin County for 20+ years. My wife, Julie and I raised our two daughters in Novato, which we love to call home.

My path to becoming a State Farm Agent includes 25+ years within the insurance industry, including 20 years as an agent. Along the way, I spent time in the sports and marketing world, working for the Barcelona Dragons in Spain, as well as a motorsports company in Phoenix. When not working out with friends, hiking, or watching sports, my wife and I like to travel and visit family, including my two daughters who are both currently located on the East Coast.

My office is focused on connection. We enjoy meeting new people and learning about their lives. We take our roles seriously and value our customers and their stories. The rocks behind the agency are my team. With over 35 total years of experience behind them, they are fun, empathetic, and hard-working. They are all stars!

I hold a B.A. from California State University, Chico, and an M.A. from the University of San Francisco.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please feel free to reach out.
