I am your local State Farm Agent for Fort Lauderdale, Wilton Manors, Pompano Beach and surrounding Florida areas. We are here to help with all your Auto Insurance, Life Insurance, Home Insurance, Condo Insurance, Renter's Insurance, Boat Insurance, Business Insurance, and Financial Services, and are happy to assist with resident relocations to the Broward County area.

I am a lifelong resident of South Florida and a proud graduate of Stranahan High School. I attended Florida State University and received a degree in Risk Management-Insurance. I am an avid fisherman and enjoy all sports, especially college football. I married my high school sweetheart, Susie, whose family roots in Fort Lauderdale go back to the 1920's. I have 4 children, a son-in-law, daughter-in-law, and 4 grandchildren- Theo, Eloise, and Tommy, and one on the way. We are long time members of the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church where we were married. I have been with State Farm Insurance since 1981 and an agent here in Fort Lauderdale since 1985. I serve on the city Insurance Advisory Board. My office and I take pride in providing excellent service to our customers as we help them manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected, and realize their dreams.

My current team and I have been together for over 10 years, with well over 50 years of experience in the insurance industry. Many of my customers have been with me from the start and enjoy seeing the same faces and hearing the same voices through the years. They consider us friends as well as insurance agents.
