I was born and raised in Hartford, Connecticut during the time where Hartford was the unquestioned Insurance Capital of the world. I had always dreamed of being in the insurance industry but the dream seemed so far away. I received an academic scholarship to attend the University of Connecticut and soon after began my journey in the insurance industry. I have focused on using my background in family services and counseling to help customers identify their needs and protect their assets and possessions. I am tri-lingual, speaking Spanish, English, and Portuguese. All of my team members are bilingual as well (Spanish) to better serve our customers. I am the proud father of three children (2 boys and 1 girl). Protecting my family and helping my customers do the same are why I became a State Farm Agent.
