As an owner she experienced it all in the pizza-making realm. From the basics of making dough to complete management of the store which includes but is not limited to bookkeeping, marketing and personnel management.

I opened my insurance agency in May of 2000.  Farmers has always provided quality, honesty and affordability, making them the ideal company for me to partner with in my own venture.  I work with my wife Gail and our amazing staff.  

Gail and I have been married for more than 25 years and we've lived in Loveland for most of that time. I enjoy spending time with my family in the outdoors. I also enjoys woodworking, small mechanical projects, doing home improvements and being the sound guy for 2 churches. Gail has worked with me in the agency for nearly 15 years as the life insurance, health insurance and employee benefits specialist. My daughters, Maria and Sara, are both energetic, active and wonderful young ladies.

I have a degree in Industrial Engineering and worked in that field for several years before moving into a sales position in the electronics industry. I'm originally from NJ but have been in Colorado for more than half of my life.

I love connecting people and being an ambassador allows me to help the new Chamber members meet other members and connect the dots in their business.  Joining the Chamber was one of the first commitments I made when we started our business.  Being a Chamber member is just a part of being a business.
