I am your local Athens Area Second Generation State Farm Agent continuing my family’s 50 year legacy of helping others with insurance and financial services. I was born and raised in Athens. I have an amazing wife of 25+ years and 3 great kids (along with a dog and a cat). I am a graduate of the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia. During high school and college, I worked in my dad’s State Farm Agency and learned firsthand that being a State Farm Agent wasn’t about selling products, but rather working with individuals and families to protect the things and people they cared about the most. After college I started a home building and real estate development company, focusing on green building and sustainable development. In 2012, I was fortunate to get an opportunity to open my own State Farm Agency in the community I love, allowing me to build relationships and help others. For recreation I love hiking, organic gardening, snowboarding (basically anything that gets me outdoors), working out, great music and great food! I enjoy being socially active and supporting organizations that give back to our community. I am a sponsor of the Athens Farmer’s Market as well as a volunteer, a sponsor of Historic Athens, a member of The Rotary Club, and a member of the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce.
