I was born and raised in DeMotte, IN. I graduated from Kankakee Valley High School in 1997. After my graduation I went to Purdue University where I studied Organizational, Leadership, and Supervision. I graduated from Purdue University in 2000.
After graduation, I started my insurance carrier with AFLAC. After achieving many of my goals, I was promoted to a District Sales Manager. After working for AFLAC for 3 years, I went to work for Farm Bureau Insurance in 2004. I went to Farm Bureau Insurance to learn more about the insurance industry. At Farm Bureau, I specialized in Auto, Home, Life, and Farm Insurance. After working at Farm Bureau for 5 years, I wanted to grow more in the industry. So in 2009, I decided to leave Farm Bureau and go to work for MBAH Insurance where I specialized in commercial, agribusiness, and farm insurance. Working at MBAH insurance taught me a great deal about the insurance industry. In 2011, I decided to leave MBAH and open Preferred Insurance Group.
Opening my own insurance agency was a life long goal I have always had. In the last 4 years, Preferred Insurance Group has grown into a very successful agency.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Aimee and my sons, Brady and Liam. We often spend time with our friends and family. We are very blessed with all of the friends we have acquired over the years. We enjoy traveling, spending time with friends and watching the Chicago Cubs or Chicago Bears. We attend Connection Point Church in West Lafayette, where I am one of the guitarists. Church and our faith are very important parts of our lives.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?
When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!
The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.
With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.
An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.
When you buy insurance, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, because it’s up to you to make the final choice.
