My Background



Joining the New York Life family back in 2006 has allowed me to introduce ways to help protect my client’s and their families; or prepare for major financial events such as paying for college, saving for retirement, or caring for an aging relative. I sincerely believe in getting to know my clients – their hopes, dreams, and goals for the future. This allows me to be as efficient as possible and know the perfect ways to help you meet your financial needs.

You can take comfort in the fact that I have been a proud resident of the Jacksonville community almost my whole life and therefore have a vested interest in seeing my friends and neighbors succeed. As a family man with a beautiful wife and two amazing boys, I have many of the same hopes and aspirations as my clients and am happy to share with you all the resources and information New York Life has to offer.

As my mission is important so are my qualifications, which are:

  • Being a licensed agent to sell life insurance, investments, and long-term plans.

  • Earning a bachelor’s degree from University of North Florida

  • I continue my education with New York Life's well-known training program, NYLIC University

  • I have been awarded Executive Council ('10, '15. '17-'21) and Quality Council ('12, '13, '14, '16).

  • I have been a proud member of Million Dollar Round Table from 2015 - 2022

To be the best possible agent, I've found that getting to know my clients is the most important first step and I value each and every one. If you are wanting an agent whose goal is to make sure his clients meet their financial goals, call me and we can get started!
