One word that describes how you like to work?
What are you looking for from your WIFS members/memberships?
WIFS was built to empower women, and by no means do they exclude men. As one of the two male members I have been completely and totally embraced by these women. These women have become great business partners, amazing friends, mentors and an incredible support system. I am extremely grateful for these women as they have taken me under their wing.
What's your favorite moment of your career?
When I get to deliver a claim check to a client.
What was your childhood dream job?
To change the special education program for children with specific learning disabilities. Children with a specific learning disability have a disorder of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language, spoke or written, which may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, speak, read, write, spell, or to do mathematical calculations.
At 12 or 13, I remember standing in my friend’s backyard telling my friend and his mother that becoming an NBA, or NFL player was totally unrealistic, and I said, “That I will whole-sale insurance, and work with my Father.”
How do you spend your free time?
I spend the majority of my free time exploring the front range. Snowboarding, hiking, and playing in the beautiful Colorado rivers. When I am not in the Mountains. I am seeing live music, riding my bicycle around the city, and laying back drinking beers with friends
What is your motto or personal mantra?
What’s one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I do pottery and I love to dance.

As a 25-year-old man many people ask me how can you be so passionate about Disability Insurance. I love my job as I get to impact individuals at what may be their most devasting and vulnerable experience in their lives. I am extremely devoted to supporting advisors through the entire process of providing disability insurance to their clientele. I often am asked why just disability insurance. Well, disability insurance may be the most under provided Insurance in the insurance industry. Disability insurance saved my father’s life. Stress can add a significant negative impact on your physical, mental, and financial well-being. When my father become ill disability insurance allowed him to focus on his health and mental well-being. Disability insurance gave me the greatest gift I could ask for. A father.
