Navigating the complexities of homeowner's, auto, and life insurance in Florida can be overwhelming. That's why it's crucial to have an experienced and knowledgeable team by your side. At our agency, we are dedicated to providing reliable, financially sound insurance options to protect you, your family, your home, and your car. Our top priority is serving the needs of our customers.

With a team of seasoned insurance agents boasting over 120 years of combined experience in the industry, we strive to deliver exceptional service by leveraging advanced systems, technology, and our expertise. We proudly serve Viera, Melbourne, Rockledge, Palm Bay, Satellite, and all other areas in Florida. You can find our office conveniently located in Viera on Wickham Rd near Interstate 95.

Let me introduce myself. I was born and raised in New Rochelle, NY, and graduated from Rollins College in Winter Park, FL with a degree in Business Administration. Since 1987, I have been associated with State Farm, gaining extensive experience in operations management and leadership roles within the corporate office. As a lifelong student of the insurance business, I have earned my Chartered Property & Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) and Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designations. Furthermore, I served as the Training Director for State Farm in Florida and held various other leadership positions before establishing my State Farm agency in June 2004.

Community involvement is important to me, and I have held several positions of responsibility within various organizations such as the Viera Regional Business Alliance (former Chairman 2x), Melbourne Florida Regional Chamber Board of Directors, Space Coast Association of Realtors, Viera Leads Group/Viera Business Network/Viera Business Alliance, Aging Matters in Brevard Board of Directors, West Melbourne Business Association (former President), Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce, and NAIFA - National Association of Insurance & Financial Advisers. Additionally, I actively participate in charitable organizations and activities and a few insurance industry committees.

Outside of work, I am a member of the Suntree UMC Church and have been since 2005. I also served as a soccer coach with Space Coast United. My wife, Jo, and I have been happily married for 37 years and are blessed with three children. Allyson, our eldest, attended FSU and obtained her doctorate in psychology from FIT. Lydia, our second child, also attended FSU and currently dedicates her time as a missionary/volunteer at an orphanage/school in India. Lastly, our youngest, Max, graduated with an engineering/data science/math degree from SMU in Dallas, and is currently attending SMU for a graduate degree in Data Science.
