I started in the insurance industry as a commercial underwriter, assisting independent agencies in the field through on-site risk assessment.  I then became an independent agent in the Cincinnati/Dayton area for one of the nation's largest brokers specializing in commercial insurance solutions.  With those experiences, God gave me the opportunity to focus on ministry and serving others in amazing ways by taking ownership of a book of business in Southwest Ohio.  That local opportunity led to expansion across multiple states serving churches, schools, camps and the businesses of their communities.    

I am an ordained pastor and am currently serving at Bridge City Church.  In addition to pastoring, I have served on multiple non-profit boards and am a small business owner.  This first-hand experience enables me and my team to have a deep understanding of the operations and concerns of our clients.  As the Head Boys Varsity basketball coach at Licking Valley High School in Newark, I was brought back into the fold of all the educational risks and safety needs first hand.

I can help you make wise policy decisions, give sound advice for protecting your organization, be available so questions and claims don’t keep you from what God has called you to do.

I currently reside in Newark, OH with my wife, Jordyn, and three children Cruz, River, Moriah, and Leo.  As a family, we enjoy cheering on the Ohio State Buckeyes and live an active lifestyle through sports, music, and serving our community.  I look forward to serving the needs of the Newark community for local commercial risks and nationally for the Church and Nonprofit exposures.
