I’ve been helping Florida residents with their insurance needs for almost 20 years here in Palm Beach County! I began my insurance career on the finance and life insurance side of the business but quickly found my niche in personal lines. A son of a general contractor, my expertise in home building has enabled me to work with our customers in protecting one of their greatest assets, the place they call home. A native to the area, I love giving back to my community and impacting the neighborhood that had so much in developing who I am. Whether it’s donating my time to organizations like Place of Hope or working with wounded veterans and their families, I enjoy every day here in South Florida.
