About Me

I grew up in Sawyer, a small town in SW Michigan, I still go back for cherry danishes from Harbert Swedish Bakery, cheeseburgers at Redamak’s, and pizza turnovers from Romas. I have been an insurance professional since 2004 and enjoy helping individuals, families, and businesses prepare for whatever life throws their way. I want my customers to know that I value their business and am honored that they rely on my agency for all their insurance-related needs. My State Farm Ann Arbor, MI office gets policyholders the coverage they deserve with business insurance, car insurance, homeowners insurance, renters insurance, life insurance and more. Since the 2020 auto insurance reform, we have many more personal liability umbrella discussions as well.

My dedicated team and I make it a priority to deliver outstanding service to every customer that walks through our doors. We are on a mission to prove that getting the coverage you deserve can be an enjoyable and easy process. We understand that insurance is not a one-size-fits-all product, which is why we take the time to really get to know every individual and work to create a personalized plan that meets their unique needs.

My first agency is based in Ann Arbor with my second location in Chelsea. Both locations serve the locals as well as those residing in the surrounding areas of Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Saline, Dexter, Ypsilanti, Milan, Belleville, and Whitmore Lake. Licensed to service the entire state of Michigan, my State Farm office provides:

● Small Business Insurance

● Auto Insurance / Classic Car Insurance

● Homeowners and Renters

● Life Insurance

● Health Insurance

● Pet Insurance

● And more!

I attended Western Michigan University where I earned my degree in Accounting and Economics. Following undergrad, I received my MBA from Eastern Michigan University with a focus on General Business. And last, but not least, I obtained my ChFC, CLU, and CASL designations. During my time at State Farm, I have earned accolades such as a Chairman’s Circle, SVP, and Ambassador Club.

As someone who values community, I am an active member of the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Chamber of Commerce. I have also been a sponsor of local little league teams and the Dexter Soccer Club. My agency has been blessed with the opportunity to support annual Thanksgiving dinners for the homeless as well as single mothers. We are also actively giving back to the community by donating to Food Gatherers, CS Mott Children’s Hospital, and the University of Michigan Depression Center.

I am a devoted husband and father who loves spending quality time with my wife and three sons. For over a decade, weekends were spent attending our kids’ sporting events and now, we are finally at a point where we have a few free weekends to spend at home playing card games or chilling with our three cats Simba, Fred and Zoe. When I do get some time for myself, I enjoy reading or playing pool and pinball with friends. I also have fun creating annual birthday songs for my customers, who quickly realize why I don’t quit my day job.

You’re welcome to stop by my State Farm Ann Arbor, MI office anytime. My team and I can’t wait to meet you and to begin discussing your insurance needs. Want to get started today? Call our office or request a quote online now!
