I grew up in the small town of Bartow, FL in the middle of the state. I graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Journalism. My family has been involved in the industry since 1912. I was the last to join the family business…joining my Dad in 1985. Providing education is my passion and I truly love the Automotive Industry. I most enjoy speaking to Dealers about insurance and how best to protect their Dealership.
Personally, I enjoy the political arena and the ”history” of our nation that brought us to where we are. I love the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution that is the framework of our Country. Some fun facts about me are that I spent many years on the golf course as a player, a teacher/instructor, and as a caddy. I love the history of the game and especially the talent of those that played in years gone by.
While I do love to travel and explore new places and things, you most often will find me covered with dirt from working on some type of ”project” at our Indialantic or Hawthorne homes when I’m not at work. I enjoy hard physical work. Our children were Boy Scouts and they gained a tremendous love and respect for God’s earth through Scouts…the trails and rivers. They became self-sufficient and learned to take care of themselves and others. Great organization.
