I am your local State Farm Agent in the Athens area, proudly continuing my family's 50-year legacy of providing insurance and financial services to others. Born and raised in Athens, I have deep roots in this community. Alongside my incredible wife of over 25 years and our three wonderful children, I am also a proud pet parent to a dog and a cat.

I hold a degree from the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia. During my high school and college years, I gained valuable experience working in my father's State Farm Agency. This firsthand experience taught me that being a State Farm Agent is not just about selling products, but rather about working closely with individuals and families to protect what matters most to them.

After college, I ventured into the world of home building and real estate development, with a particular focus on green building and sustainable development. In 2012, I was fortunate enough to seize the opportunity to open my own State Farm Agency right here in the community I love. This has allowed me to forge strong relationships and make a positive impact on the lives of others.

When it comes to recreation, I thoroughly enjoy activities that take me outdoors, such as hiking, organic gardening, and snowboarding. Staying physically active is important to me, and I also have a great appreciation for music. Socially, I am actively involved in supporting organizations that give back to our community. As a sponsor of the Athens Farmer's Market, a volunteer, a member of The Rotary Club, and a member of the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce, I am dedicated to making a difference.
