Vice President
About

I was born for business development...as I love building relationships and solving problems for the clients I serve. I have done this is the insurance realm for 20 years...not in a Ned Ryerson way...but in a consultative way without the trench coat, briefcase and umbrella. I am a Group Benefits Disability Specialist...which makes me a contract nerd and quite the hit at parties. While I am not "insurancing"...I serve on a a few great Boards - Meramec Valley Bank, Junior Achievement of Greater St. Louis and the Metropolitan St. Patrick's Day Parade in St. Louis (Chairman 2021-2022). I've got a cute and patient wife Lisa, three awesome kids, McKinley, Ellie and Finn and a boxer named Marta. I am a competitive BBQr, long-distance kayaker, hiker and biker, reader and singer.

What’s the best life lesson you’ve learned?

We only go around this merry-go-round once. The greatest regrets in life can be found with your inaction rather than actions taken. "What could have been" haunts me more than "what did I do?" Gather ye rosebuds while ye may! Seize the day! Carpe Diem!

Why did you join Virtus?

Virtus is a great entrepreneurial assembly of renegades and revolutionaries that here to boldly make a measurable mark and notable difference through invention, innovation and disruption in an industry that has grown complacent and stale.

What’s a trip that changed you, and why?

MR340 - longest continuous kayak race in the world. 340 miles from KC to St. Charles. You need to beat the reaper and finish in 85 hours. Great test of endurance of mind and body. It intimates you with your own personal resilience and intestinal fortitude.

What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER - written to me in a letter by my dad on my 8th grade graduation day.

What’s your favorite quote?

"We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.” - Charles Bukowski
