What are 3 words people use to describe you?
My youngest son, Luca, says "My dad is nice because he protects me when we go to the lake. My dad is cool and helpful". There you go: protective, cool and helpful.
What do you enjoy most about insurance?
The industry is ripe for creative disruption. It is an exciting time to bring fresh perspective to an otherwise sleepy and stagnant industry. I love the challenge of refining the client experience with candor and compelling value.
What are you most grateful for?
My loving family and loyal friendships.
What gets you excited about life?
Quality time with my most favorite people.
How do you define success?
As a husband: Taking out the trash without being asked.
As a dad: Putting away electronic distractions to be fully present.
What do you love to do outside of work?
I love being involved in my family's hobbies. Cheering at gymnastics meets, coaching youth football, waiting at the finish line of a race, strapping up helmets at the skate park. Whatever it is, I love supporting my wife and kids as they develop their talents and seek out new adventures.
What life lesson did you learn the hard way?
I've learned two very painful lessons. First, I learned that 14,505 ft is not a joke. Stay hydrated and properly acclimate if you are going to climb Mt. Whitney! Second, I learned that if you are going to run a marathon you should spend some time training. I can still feel every painful step of the 2015 Orange County Marathon. What an experience!
