Welcome to our insurance agency website! As we celebrate the vibrant month of June, we are thrilled to assist you in protecting what matters most to you. June brings with it a sense of joy and excitement, with various celebrations and events taking place. From Father's Day to World Environment Day, this month is filled with opportunities to appreciate and honor the things we hold dear. Just as these celebrations remind us of the importance of family and our environment, our agency is here to remind you of the significance of safeguarding your assets and loved ones through the right insurance coverage. Let us be your ally in navigating the world of insurance this June and beyond.

I have been proudly serving as a State Farm insurance agent since 2018. In August of 2021, our State Farm office opened and has been protecting our community and serving the insurance needs of the Gunnison area ever since. This town means the world to me. I was born and raised here and am now an active member of the volunteer fire department!

After graduating from Gunnison High School, I attended junior college at the New Mexico Military Institute before graduating from Metro State University in Denver with my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management. I played baseball throughout all four years of college.

My wife Kim and I were married in Gunnison in 2018. We welcomed our daughter, Kennedy Sue, to the family in May of 2020. We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our baby boy in the summer of 2024! When I’m not in the office, I love vacationing with my family and enjoying all of the natural beauty that the Gunnison area has to offer. Some of my favorite outdoor hobbies include hunting, shooting, riding my ATV, camping, and playing golf.

I was inspired to become an insurance agent to help educate people about finance. There are so many options when it comes to insurance, retirement, and everything in between. I understand how daunting those choices can seem, and I want to be a resource to help my customers make informed decisions.

At our agency, we are committed to building lasting relationships. We meet regularly, face-to-face, with customers to keep up to date on what’s going on in their lives. This helps us ensure they are prepared for the unexpected and set up to achieve their financial goals.

We offer a wide variety of services, including Auto, Home, Life, Business Insurance, and other financial service products. In addition, I am a Charted Life Underwriter and a ChFC. Our office is proud to serve Gunnison, Crested Butte, Mt. Crested Butte, Lake City and all surrounding areas with their insurance and financial needs.

Our priority will always be to assist our community, our customers, and their families. As an insurance professional, husband, father, and active member of the Gunnison Volunteer Fire Department, I strive to not only protect my customers but also contribute positively to the place we call home
