Why I do what I do

Why I do what I do

I am so blessed to be able to make a living by helping others as well as their communities. Each day, I sit down and help people overcome financial concerns and obstacles. I also get to help my community with our fraternal programs and activities. It’s very rewarding to be able to do what I do.

I serve members in…

Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, and Lee counties on a regular basis. Are you located elsewhere? Let's chat and see if what I do would be beneficial for you and your unique financial situation. I am willing to give it a go no matter where you are located!

I can help you plan for life using a variety of tools, including…

life insurance, annuities, mutual funds and variable annuities.

I enjoy working with…

individuals, business owners and charitable organizations who are looking for blessings within their finances. In all instances, I specialize in both asset protection and asset accumulation. Specifically, as a financial coach with 25 years of trading experience, I can help you assess your risk tolerance and provide personalized ways to achieve your goals. And as a previous small-business owner of over a decade, I can help you navigate the pitfalls of business ownership.

I attended…

Palmetto High School - Go Tigers! After high school, I went to the State College of Florida. I studied business management and attained an associate's degree.

I am very proud of…

my organization, Modern Woodmen of America. In 2021, we completed over 236,000 hours of community service and donated over $16 million back to our local communities. I am so blessed to work for an organization that contributes AND prioritizes giving back to the neighborhoods in which we serve on a daily basis!

Before Modern Woodmen, I…

used my small business to refine my craft for coaching and proper product selection for each individual. Through bowling lessons, I developed ways to articulate recommendations for changing scenarios and environments. Sometimes these recommendations would emphasize product changes, while other times strategy adjustments were more appropriate. Now I mentor extraordinary individuals on how to advance their savings and dream bigger, larger and greater!

I chose Modern Woodmen because…

of its fraternal roots anchored in education and instruction. We take a fraternal approach to support people in obtaining their own goals while also contributing to and improving the community as a whole! Every member of Modern Woodmen has the opportunity to help not only members nationwide but also neighbors from their own community!

The best part of my career is…

encouraging each person to see that they are meant for extraordinary achievements! Our accomplishments in life are more often limited by mindset than ability.

A favorite moment in my career was when…

clients realized that I am their partner for this journey and that I am not just present for the initial agreement. Seeing the peacefulness in their eyes when they realized that we are teammates with a unified objective was most gratifying!

“My personal motto is be blessed and bold today! Do not be afraid to strive to achieve great things and understand that you are worthy of those things!”

My life outside of work

My family includes…

my champion wife, Esther, my dynamic daughter, Skye, and intense baby boy, Zayne! We are a perfect mix of fortunate and boldness!

In my free time, you can find me…

golfing if I am off on my own. However, most of the time, I am watching Marvel movies with my daughter, taking my son to a local park or relaxing with my wife. As a family, we love cooking or baking, travelling, and going to theme parks.

I’m passionate about…

financial freedom! I have seen how financial stressors can hold people prisoner, and there is no greater joy than to see the enthusiasm that someone experiences when they realize that they are not locked into their current situation. It is a privilege to watch people break through those restraints that they once thought were unbreakable!

My greatest blessing is…

the relationship that my family has with the Lord. We find great comfort in our Lord and trust in all things that he has provided for us.

My personal motto is…

be blessed and bold today!! Do not be afraid to strive to achieve great things and understand that you are worthy of those things!

My hidden talent is…

discovered at your local Top Golf venue. :)

My local community impact

I have lived in my community…

for 37 years! I am deeply rooted within this community and am invested in making it a better place and watching it thrive! Both my wife and I, as well as our daughter, have gone to schools here, and my young son will as well.

What I like best about my community is…

the close-knit feel that has sustained here. Through expansion and growth, neighbors still can be seen gathering together in the streets, the parks are full of young families, and the local mom and pop businesses are thriving as great hangout spots!

I’m a member of…

the local softball and bowling associations here! I take pride in the relationships that are born through local sports here.

My favorite volunteer activities are…

activities involving children! I love to partner with Modern Woodmen fraternal chapters to assist in fundraising for local charities. I also love local chapter events that just get members together out in our community.

It’s very important to me to support my community. My favorite Modern Woodmen programs are:

helping provide positive experiences for kids with Modern Woodmen’s local youth service clubs.

My favorite memory from a fraternal event is…

almost getting a hole-in-one at a local golf tournament to raise money for the local Young Life chapter, which Modern Woodmen was sponsoring via a fund match.

Southwest Florida regional Top Golf outing

Our region got together to celebrate our members' and representatives' accomplishments with a fun outing at the Top Golf in Fort Myers, Florida. I love being a part of an organization that believes in community and celebrating successes of others. We had a fun day of great golf and fantastic food while also getting to pass out awards in honor of extraordinary accomplishments! We all must work hard, but isn't it great when you can take some time to play hard as well? I am so blessed to have found a career that provides opportunities to do both!
