Throughout my entire life, I have been a team player - in sports and at the workplace. I enjoy winning, but I get more gratification when I can help others succeed. I'm a teammate for advisors - identifying new sales opportunities, providing consultative and comprehensive insurance support services and effectively helping advisors grow their business.
I entered the financial services industry in 2002, and I have my life and health insurance licenses, as well as my series 6 designation. With previous experience as a producer, marketer and internal wholesaler, I understand the process from the ground up. I consult on life insurance, disability income and long-term care. One of my specialties is working with business owners - I worked in several small businesses and am associated with my wife's family business. I enjoy meeting with business owners because of their entrepreneurial spirit.
Happily married to my wife, Kelly, I have two children, Quinton and Aubrey, and we reside in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I enjoy spending time with my family, coaching my kids in basketball and volleyballs and watching sports. I'm also an active member of Toastmasters International and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
