As your local Monroe County agent for nearly 25 years, I value the importance of serving and protecting those in our community. With a background in construction and growing up on my parents’ farm in eastern Monroe County, I have an added understanding of how my clients’ homes and farms should be protected. My love of farming is still a part of my life today as my wife, Tammy, and I raise cross bred cattle and hay on our own farm. Throughout my career at Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance, I have earned multiple company-sponsored awards for sales and service. Active in our local community, I have been involved in 4-H for the last 40 years, serving on several committees as well as the 4-H Board of Directors. Tammy and I have three children, seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Outside the office, Tammy and I enjoy watching our grandchildren and great-grandchildren learn about the wonders of life. We also enjoy antiquing and traveling the country in search of the rare treasures that mean little to anyone else but us. I am a graduate of Bloomington High School South and attended both Indiana and Purdue Universities. It’s important for me to get to know you and your insurance needs, so don’t hesitate to reach out!
