I grew up in Upstate NY. I was born in Amsterdam, NY which is part of the leather stocking region. I graduated with honors from Broadalbin-Perth High School in NY. I was a member of the marching band, choir and concert band. I went on to attend Albany College of Pharmacy in Albany, NY right out of high school. After a few years I decided that I wanted to take a different path and entered into the world of sales following in my father's footsteps. My Dad has always put great customer service at the top of his list and I have witnessed that since I was a young man. I enjoy sales because I get to deal with people one on one. I am a people person and I don't know a stranger and I think my daughter also has that trait too. I moved here to Indiana in 1995. I managed marketing crews for the Indianapolis Star for many years. I decided to work at FedEx where I learned to drive a BIG truck and also carry a Class A CDL license. I drove semis and concrete mixers for many years. I met my amazing wife Kari in December 2007. I married the love of my life in 2009. We were blessed with our beautiful daughter Kinley in 2010. I got tired of driving and knew it was time to enter back into the world of sales which I did in 2009. I have earned many awards, Rookie of the Year in 2009, Sales Associate of the Year on 2011, Multi Million Dollar Producer in 2011 and 2012 and have been named a 5 Star Professional for 2013.
