My philosophy in life? It’s pretty simple: Relationships come first. As a dedicated local State Farm agent serving my neighbors in Raleigh, NC (all of NC and SC) and the greater region, including Garner, Cary, Apex, Clayton, Holly Springs and Durham, I’m blessed to be able to build relationships with customers every day. It’s a passion of mine to help people when they need it most and make sure they’re prepared for the unexpected. That’s what drew me to join the State Farm family, after years of co-owning a successful appliance repair and plumbing business. So, in June 2018, my family and I made the move from South Carolina to Raleigh to open my State Farm office, and we’ve never looked back!

I’m an entrepreneur and a problem solver at heart, one of the reasons I earned my MBA from Augusta University. And problem solving is key when you’re figuring out your coverage options. I’m big on breaking things down, really understanding where your needs are, and finding policies that make sense for you. That’s a practice you’ll find in our office, no matter which team member you’re talking to. It’s a real joy working alongside my experienced, professional team in the office, and I regularly read reviews saying customers love working with them, too. Feel free to drop by and meet us! We’re happy to serve you.

Outside the office, I’m a big believer in giving back to the community. I’m active with my church, and I also participate in Rotary International groups and Business Networking International events. Of course, my favorite thing to do in my downtime is spend time with my amazing wife and kids. I also love cooking, woodworking, good Carolina BBQ, live sports, movies, and traveling all over with my family. Recently, we've become fans of the local big league hockey franchise, and we love rooting them on (Go Canes)! In the fall we love to be out on our porch and enjoying a fire!

There’s no better time to find insurance coverage that’ll fit your life. We offer auto insurance, home insurance, property insurance, business insurance, life insurance and health insurance. Give us a call today for your free quote.
