I am a native of Buffalo, NY but I have spent the last 12 years here in Alabama. I have spent the bulk of my professional career working in the financial services industry, predominantly as a lender and manager at several local banks. I made the switch to the insurance industry because I have a strong passion for helping people understand both their own personal finances, and how the financial system works. I enjoy making sure my clients have adequate protection in place in order to prepare for life's uncertainties. I love spending my spare time with my wife Amanda and our wonderful daughter Annabelle, and can often be found on a road trip to a new destination, or in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee. We are members of Church of the Highlands, where I serve as an usher, financial coach, and small group leader.
