About me

As the third generation in my family to work with Allstate, I am fortunate to have exceptional role models who showed me the value that insurance provides in challenging situations as well as the importance of always acting with integrity.

I got my own start in the insurance business when I worked at my father's agency as a student at West Morris High School. After graduating from the University of Scranton, I volunteered in Brooklyn and also worked as a high school administrator in Scranton for several years before joining my father in his Long Valley agency in 2003. Knowing the relationships that he had built with customers over the years and how he helped them through tough times while also building friendships, coming home to work with my father in Long Valley made perfect sense. In 2008, I purchased the agency from my father and gave him the opportunity to begin his much-deserved retirement.

I am proud to call Morris County home. From Schooley’s Mountain Park to Patriot’s Path, this is such a beautiful area with wonderful people. New Jersey is a great place for my wife and me to raise our young son, and we love spending time together on the beaches, golf courses, and ski slopes right here in the Garden State. I stay active in the community as a member of the Long Valley Village Association, and I’m a proud supporter of the West Morris Central athletic teams. I am honored to give back to the community that has given me so much through sponsorships including the Washington Township Historical Society, the Action for Distraction Run/Walk (to benefit the Goryeb Children's Hospital), Alex's Lemonade Stand and more.

With the Short Family Agency, you’ll experience the personalized service that comes with a family-run business. Whether you need auto, home, and life insurance or are looking to start saving for college or retirement, my team and are I here to help you choose what works best in your life. We look forward to getting to know you and hope you’ll stop by today. We are right next to the Sunoco gas station on East Mill Road!

  • Insurance is unlike any other product out there - you pay for it and hope you never have to use it. And that makes paying more than you need to that much more uncomfortable.
    With a policy from Allstate, you can help keep your insurance costs low with the wide variety of discounts we offer. Keep in mind, not all discounts are available in every state. The best way to get all that you qualify for is to get an insurance quote specific to Long Valley.

    You can get a rough "ballpark" insurance quote from many companies online, but talking with an agent allows you to ask questions and get a quote for coverage that matters most to you. An agent can prepare a quote that details the coverage, deductibles (your portion of a loss) and cost (premium) of your insurance policy.
