I am a second generation State Farm agent and grew up in Rockford, IL. I graduated from Northern Illinois University, where I learned the ins-and-outs of small business. I am honored to have represented State Farm for over two decades. Before opening my agency in 2017, I was in a variety of leadership roles within State Farm corporate from Claims to Learning and Development — this rich history ensures you are receiving a remarkable experience for you and your loved ones.

I lived in Chicago for several years and traveled the country extensively for my previous roles within State Farm, but I'm very grateful to have roots planted back home in northern Illinois where my wife and I are raising our children. As a small business owner myself and a proud member of the Board of Directors for the Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce, I'm passionate about helping and supporting other businesses grow and flourish in our community.
