Insurance is important. Believe me, I know first-hand. In 2007, my family and I lost our home and everything we owned in a devastating wildfire. State Farm was there to help us get back on our feet. Now, I’m proud to help customers with their insurance coverage as a local State Farm agent here in Chico, CA. I work with people from around Northern California, including Durham, Orland, Oroville, Paradise, Forest Ranch, Corning and Hamilton City.

I’m a second-generation State Farm employee—my father believed wholeheartedly in this company’s good neighbor mission, and I’m honored to continue that tradition. I opened my agency in 2014 to help people understand their unique needs and find the right policies to cover them. My goal as your agent is to make sure there are no surprises! My friendly, dedicated team is always available to answer questions and offer support throughout the process.

My Northern California roots are deep—I grew up in the Bay Area, graduated from Chico State, and spent almost a decade in the technology industry before shifting gears to State Farm. I’m also a loving husband and father of two, and you can usually find me running back and forth from practices and games, or out on a family hike in Bidwell Park.

Whether you’re relocating to the area or are a lifelong resident, let’s work together on a coverage plan that fits your life. My office can help with auto insurance, motorhome insurance, ATV/UTV insurance, motorcycle insurance, health insurance, life insurance and much more.

Currently online quoting is unavailable. If you would like an insurance quote, please call/text or stop by our office. My team and I are ready to help with all of your insurance and financial needs.

Life insurance can feel complicated and overwhelming, but at its core, it's a pretty simple way to plan for the financial future of the people you love. Learning what life insurance is now can help you make informed decisions about the right ways to keep your family protected.

May ~ National Wildfire Awareness Month:

National Wildfire Awareness Month dedicates the entire month of May to prevention and preparedness. This national campaign encourages people and organizations everywhere to come together and take action to raise awareness and reduce wildfire risks.

Good wildfire preparedness begins long before a fire occurs. Help ensure your family's safety by installing and maintaining smoke alarms and fire extinguishers in your home. Wildfires feed on vegetation, and hot, dry conditions increase the risk and speed of a wildfire. The most effective way to protect your home from possible wildfire damage is to remove or reduce the potential fuel within a 30-feet safety zone around your home. (If you live in a high-risk area, increase the safety zone to 100 feet).

The absolute worst time to learn how your insurance works is during a claim-- when you don’t have the option to make changes. Yet that is exactly what happens to most of us.

The realty of a large claim can hit hard financially and emotionally for you and your family. That’s why we work hard to simplify the world of Insurance and Financial Services so that there are never any surprises when a claim occurs.

Our job is not to push you into a policy, but to have a conversation to make sure what we are recommending makes sense and is the right fit for you, your family and your budget.
