I was born in Orlando, Florida, which was very convenient for trips to Disney! However, I grew up most of my life in Ohio and graduated from the Ohio State University.

After many years in corporate America, I made the transition to the insurance industry in 2019 and have loved every minute of the opportunity it provides to help our clients protect their assets and families. What I enjoy most about my role here at Paragon Insurance Group is leading an amazingly dedicated and incredibly passionate team that makes a difference every day in our clients’ lives!

As far as personal hobbies, I enjoy the pursuit of physical fitness including working out, martial arts or just playing sports with my kids. I’m a passionate NFL and college football fan, and you won’t find me ever missing an Ohio State Buckeyes game. With 3 very active kids, on the weekends I am usually shuttling them between activities or coaching their sports teams. We also love to travel together!

I grew up in south Florida and I am currently pursuing my degree in Psychology at Florida International University. By the age of 16 I was able to obtain my diploma in piano. Being given the opportunity to assist clients with new policy’s brings much joy to my daily routine at work. It gives both my client and I, the chance to learn more about each other’s common interests and make new connections. The exciting part of walking into work every day is meeting someone new! I personally enjoy taking my dog for a long walk and cooking something new at home. I find endless conversations in the topic of politics and law. I am very athletic; I always like to keep moving by training for a 5k run or powerlifting in the gym. During the week you can find me at the gym after work or in the library studying. On the weekends I like to take a little trip, either to the beach, or the mountains for a nice hike!

One of the things I have learned while working in the insurance industry is that not many people truly understand their coverage. That is why I make it a point to educate and inform my clients to make sure they have the right coverage for their lifestyle. I enjoy creating long-term relationships with my customers and pride myself in excellent customer service.

I was born in Medellin, Colombia before relocating to Miami, FL at a young age. That is when I developed my earliest passion–soccer. From playing and winning national championships in high school to refereeing and coaching local kids teams, it has always been a huge part of my life. I am still involved with one of our local soccer facilities and enjoy spending some of my Saturdays there.

On my downtime, you can find me spending quality time with my beautiful wife and our cat Mia (she loves attention).  Whenever I have some spare time I like to read books and listen to podcasts that help me learn and grow.

I was born and raised in the Big Apple (NYC). What I most like about my job is being able to help clients find what they are looking for, and it’s rewarding when they show appreciation for providing a service to them. I enjoy it making a connection with the clients on everyday things in life; it just shows how all of us are human and enjoy good conversation!

I was born and raised in Miami, FL. I attended Florida State University where I received my bachelor’s degree in Finance. I’ve been in the insurance industry for 2 years, and I’ve come to realize it is much less about the numbers than it is the connections I make with my clients every day. Personally, I really enjoy lifting weights, I’ve done so since I was 12. I also enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends, whether it be watching our favorite teams play or simply grabbing something to eat. One thing not many people know about me is I enjoy listening to philosophy and different ways of thinking. I’m always open to new perspectives. I am very passionate about helping those in need whenever I can, and that extends to my clients!
