Some people take a while to choose the career path that is right for them. Straight out of college, I got a job working in the insurance industry and I knew I had found my calling. I have been with State Farm since 2003 and have found fulfillment in what I do every day. My main focus is ensuring every customer has a positive experience and gets the personalized insurance plan they need. My State Farm Leland, NC office better prepares our policyholders for the unexpected with auto insurance, homeowners insurance, life insurance, business insurance, and much more.

Over the years, my team and I have helped countless individuals, families, and small business owners realize their dreams. I believe in building authentic relationships with policyholders, acting with professionalism, transparency, and kindness. My dedicated team and I make ourselves accessible to our customers whenever they have a question or concern — nothing like those annoying pre-recorded customer service messages.

For those who have relocated to North Carolina, my agency makes the insurance transfer process easy and stress-free. Proud to have been born and raised in The Tar Heel State, I am on a mission to positively impact the community one insurance policy at a time. Located in Leland, my agency serves the Lower Cape Fear region including Wilmington, Southport, St. James, Ocean Isle, Ocean Ridge, Bolivia, Supply, and Winnabow. Licensed to service the entire state of North Carolina, my State Farm office offers:

● Auto Insurance

● Homeowners & Renters Insurance

● Health Insurance

● Life Insurance

● And more!

I am a Brunswick County Community Foundation Board Member, North Carolina Railroad Company Board Member, North Carolina Insurance Underwriters Association Board Member, Historic Cape Fear Club Board Member, North Brunswick Chamber member, Halo Hoops youth basketball coand a St. James Parish member. As you can probably tell by that lengthy list of organizations, I like to stay involved in my community and as a Good Neighbor, I happily support nonprofits such as the Me Fine Foundation and Boy Scouts – Cape Fear Council.

I graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. When I am not meeting with customers or making important calls, I can be found spending time with my wife and our two children. On the weekends, we are likely to be enjoying a day at the pool or the beach. I also like golfing, playing tennis, and gardening — I enjoy growing produce almost as much as I enjoy growing my customer’s confidence.

Feel free to stop by my State Farm Leland, NC office anytime. The team and I are looking forward to meeting you. Ready to begin discussing your insurance needs today? Call our office or request a quote online now
