I have lived in the Grand Rapids area for most of my life, and my wife and I cannot imagine living anywhere else. This area has so much to offer with Lake Michigan beaches just 40 minutes away, and we can drive to Chicago or Detroit in just a couple of hours. A perfect summer day for me is visiting Michigan’s lakeshore communities, shopping at our local farmers market and engaging in my passion for photographing Lake Michigan sunsets.

I know and love life here, and it’s important to me to give back to the community that has given me so much. When my sons were playing sports, I coached baseball and football, and I was the president of the Grand Rapids Rocket Football League for five years. I was also a MHSAA football official for 12 years and a baseball umpire for two. My wife and I were also involved in the Grand Rapids Central High School Music Boosters for 8 years, and I was president for 4 years.

Insurance is important to our family as my three sons work in the industry. My son is also an Allstate agent, and in 2015 he helped me transition out of a career in healthcare technology and open the doors to my own Allstate agency. Our team is focused on providing the very best customer care, and we work with customers individually and help them customize their coverage for their specific needs. We’re ready to help you protect what is important to you — your home, vehicles and more. Our Allstate Personal Financial Representative is also on hand to help you with life insurance, college savings or preparing for retirement. Please call or stop by today!

New Michigan Auto Insurance Reform

Beginning July 2, 2020, Michigan will no longer require drivers to purchase expensive, unlimited Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage with their auto insurance. Drivers now have the freedom to pick their own insurance options, selecting the level of coverage that’s right for them.
The new law ends the state’s unique requirement that motorists purchase auto insurance policies with unlimited, lifetime medical benefits for auto accident related injuries.
But that's not the only change that could affect you. Call or stop by my agency today to learn more.
