Welcome to State Farm Insurance! Open since 2017 our agency has grown to be a beacon in this community. We are entirely staffed with an experienced and a high energy team who is here to help you, step by step, with all of your insurance needs from Auto insurance and Home insurance to Life insurance and Health supplement products. Our mission is simple that is to Help Life go Right.

After serving customers within State Farm claims in 2006 to serving agents for 13 additional years after, I always wanted to be in the front lines contributing to our customers, our team of agents and our local community. As a State Farm agent I have served at our local High Schools by providing educational driving and insurance courses. I have also participate in educational events in both Nova University and at the Broward's Clerk of Courts. We are centrally located in the town on Davie and nestled in Cooper City, Hollywood and Pembroke Pines. We also serve Plantation, Weston, Sunrise, Southwest Ranches and Fort Lauderdale.

I studied Education in Miami-Dade College and in 2005 obtained a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations from FIU. Passionate about helping people, the move to agency was a natural fit. I also have a life insurance designation (LUTCF) from the American College and the National Association of Insurance & Financial Services. In addition, I served in Miami's NAIFA Board of Directors. On my free time I love to go to the gym and hang with my wife Gail, who also works with us in the agency. Please feel free to visit our office, meet us and grab one of our goody bags just for stopping by.
