President

Bio

Originally born an raised in Cabell County- Huntington, WV, and resides in Canton, Ohio with his wife, Alyssa and their 2 Children Asher and Addison. I moved to Canton 8 years ago to become a Nationwide Insurance agency owner. I attended Huntington High School and Marshall University, both in Huntington, WV.

Over the years I have grown in customers and needed to add staff and locations across Northeast Ohio and servicing West Virginia. I enjoy getting to know my customers and their families, and consider many to be good friends! Myself, and my team try to work as fast as possible without sacrificing the personal interaction with our customers.

I enjoy golfing, but with a busy work schedule it is not that often. Traveling with my family and sitting on my deck gives us much enjoyment.
