My adventure into the world of insurance began in 2007. I worked to hone my skills as an account executive and developed a passion for helping my community through insurance. My path eventually led me to Griffin Owens, where I became a Commercial Insurance Account Executive in 2023.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is building relationships with my clients. It is important to me that each of my clients feel heard and comfortable asking questions. To do this, I focus on policy education while listening to their individual concerns. Then, together we can build a policy that covers their specific needs.
I firmly believe in the importance of supporting local initiatives. This is why I have been an active member of my HOA Board, Prince George’s County Chamber of Commerce, Andrews Business and Community Alliance, and Habitat for Humanity. Serving these organizations has not only allowed me to contribute to the betterment of my community but has also provided me with a place to make a meaningful impact on those around me. Our community is filled with warmth and support, and it makes me proud to be able to give back to it.
Outside of the insurance world, my life is filled with an array of interests and passions. I grew up in State College, Pennsylvania and since my father coached at Penn State University, it was only right I attended college there. I received a B.A. in Communications with a Business minor. I am an avid golfer and by blood right, a major fan of Penn State football. My family is everything to me and I cherish the time I get to spend with my wife, daughter, and our dog Mia. You can often find us all huddled up on the couch, watching our devoted movie-buff daughter's latest cinematic find.
A quote I live by comes from the last scene of my favorite movie, Shawshank Redemption, “Get busy living or get busy dying”. It reminds me about the preciousness of life and that the next day is never promised, so live each day to the fullest.
