I love Vermont! Attending UVM cemented that love. My next major life choice was to reside in this community. Culture, community, lake and mountain geography and more make this state a wonderful place to live in. My wife Kathy and I raised two wonderful kids here, Max and Sara, who are fulfilling their dreams now. We are not completely empty nesters though. Our pups Lila and Cai keep us pretty busy. You can meet them at the office. Outside of work, you might find me on the tennis court, dog walking, skiing, fly fishing, or kiteboarding.

I am thankful for the opportunity to own and insurance agency under the State Farm umbrella. What a fantastic company! 2022 was the 100 year anniversary! Look up our top national ranking in property and casualty as well as life insurance. The financial strength of the company is second to none.
