Insurance Agent

Where did you grow up and how long have you lived here? What do you think about Naples?
I grew up in Lexington, KY. In the later 90’s my mother tricked my little sister and brothers in to moving to Florida. She did this with numerous vacations to Disney and Universal. We moved to Cape Coral in 2000 until I left for college. After graduating at FAU, I dreaded returning home to live with my mother, but the blessing in disguise arrived in 2009. Best blind date ever! My buddy, her little brother, set me up with my wife Erin, a Naples Native. Our roots are deep in Naples and we have no plans to leave.

Are you married? Have any kids?
My wife Erin and I were married at Saint Anns in downtown Naples in 2011. We have two spirited boys Colston (6) and Weston (4). My two little firecrackers never stop running around and bumping into things. I don’t know where all the energy comes from, but I wish I had a tenth of it!

Do you have a secret talent?
My wife says I can sleep through a hurricane….

If you could only watch one movie for the rest of your life; what would it be and why?
Star Wars. That is all that needs to be said

If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose?
I’d love to be able to do the Jedi mind trick. “These are not the droids you’re looking for.” Or “Honey, I don’t need to take the trash out tonight.”

What is your dream car?
A car that is paid off.

What’s your favorite quote and who said it?
F.A.M.I.L.Y means Father and Mother I Love You.
