I am a father of 3 wonderful children, and a Firefighter/Paramedic for the City of Schenectady. I served in the Army for 8 years and was deployed to Iraq multiple times. I learned a lot from my time overseas, and I am very proud to have been given the opportunity to serve my country. I am also extremely proud to be able to serve my community as a Firefighter, but also with the work we do with Veterans, the Special Olympics, the Schenectady Firefighters Cancer Foundation, and various other charities we donate to or work directly with. I enjoy working hard and spending time with my family. I have been an Insurance Agency Owner now for 4 years, and I am enjoying the on-the-go education I have received from it. I get great satisfaction when we can review a policy find errors, fix them, and save the customer some money. That is a great feeling. I also enjoy educating clients and potential clients on how Insurance works, and how to get the best protection for the best price. I am CPIA certified and licensed in several states. I am also licensed to do Commercial Insurance, Life Insurance and Medicare Supplement/Plan Insurance. When I am not working long hours, my family and I like to do outings when we can (busy schedules) like: hiking, camping, fishing, theme parks, and traveling. I have 2 boys and 1 girl and every day they find a way to make me laugh and be inspired. There’s nothing like the sound of a child’s laughter and the curiosity of a child. They don’t mince words and ask direct questions. It’s great!
