I started selling insurance in 2000 as an independent for Miles and Finch in Carmel, Indiana. After a successful seven years as an agent, I relocated to Boulder, Colorado to pursue a career in education and coaching. After our two children were born, my wife Jessica and I gravitated to the Valley to be closer to family. We have enjoyed raising our kids here, and my investment in helping people led me out of the classroom and back to insurance with Weaver. My favorite part about being an agent is building relationships with clients and figuring out the unique coverage each individual needs.
