I have 30 Years in management for three insurance companies. Training Director, Regional Vice President, and company field officer. I also have 12 years as a multi-line insurance agent licensed in 5 states.

I was raised in Louisville KY and relocated 12 times throughout my management career. I hold a fellowship in the Life Underwriters Training Council and have been licensed in 15 states across the country in my career.

I can’t imagine doing anything else. I watched my father serve in this industry for 25+ years as well as serve in the community. That provided the backdrop for me as I have gone through my life doing the same.

I am a huge College Sports fan. So much more enjoyable than professional. I play doubles tennis with my wife as my partner. Not bad for an old man!

My wife and I enjoy boating, tennis and taking short trips to enjoy this great country we live in. The family is key with three kids and five grandkids.

In 1974 I sang in the White House on request from the administration for the St Patricks Day Mass with Dr. Norman Vincent Peale. I performed for 27 years with a multi-denominational group, and we traveled the Eastern US performing in churches and for corporate functions.

I am active in my church and serve on the Parish Council. My wife and I have also been working as premarital counselors in the Catholic Church. I have served as President of Homeowners Associations in 2 locations.
