How time flies! I'm now in my fourth decade as a State Farm Agent. I started my career with State Farm in 1994 in Escanaba, MI. I had previously worked as an adult educator for a large Electric Company in Southeast Wisconsin. In 1995, I relocated to Petoskey where I met my wife Phyllis, who has been a real estate agent in the area for the past 20 years. She is originally from Indian River and has introduced me to the beautiful surroundings of Burt Lake, Crooked River, and the Indian River. Together, we have 5 children and 9 grandchildren.

One of our favorite activities is spending time on the inland waterway, enjoying boating and fishing on the rivers and lakes. We are also passionate about pickleball and can often be found on the outdoor courts in Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Charlevoix or Boyne City and at North Central Michigan College during inclement weather.

What we love most about being in the Petoskey area is the people! Our main goal is to help our customers create a personalized insurance plan that meets all of their needs. The more we understand our customers, the better we can protect them. You can reach us by phone, online, or by visiting our office for more information.

In addition to offering Renter's Insurance, Life Insurance, and Health Products, we also provide Business Insurance. We can even insure all of your recreational vehicles, such as personal watercraft, boats, trailers, antique automobiles, GEM Cars, and ATVs. Come see us and we'll create a personalized price plan just for you! We strive to get our customers as many discounts as possible.

Our team members focus in various areas, including Auto Insurance, Home and Business Insurance, Life and Health Insurance, Property Insurance, and Pet Insurance. If you're moving to Michigan, we can assist you with out-of-state transfers. We are also here to help you navigate Michigan's Auto reform changes.

We are proud to be your go-to team for insurance needs in Petoskey, Bay Harbor, Bay View, Harbor Springs, Wequetonsing, Bay View, Alanson, Conway, Indian River, Pellston, and beyond.

Being "good neighbors" is important to us, and we actively support our local church and recovery communities. Our mission is to see everyone become Healed, Healthy, and Whole.

Rest assured, we are here to ensure the safety and security of your assets, family, and future!
