Born and raised in Cleveland OH, I started my adult independence with the US Marines in 1974. After my discharge, I took up with a space exploration company here in San Diego where I had the pleasure of working on projects like the Star Wars Project, Satellites, and The Space Shuttle programs. After the downturn in 1989, I opened Rose Canyon Cycles and Blacksmith Bicycle Wheels. Here, I had the pleasure of meeting people of all professions and travelers from around the world. The days when I plan to get absolutely nothing done, I would take all four of my buddies to work and we would play and eat all day. I entered the insurance industry in 2015 after selling the bike shops specializing in Life, Health and Accident. Now with the experience of BJA Partners I hoped to add other areas of insurance to my resume so I can continue to be out and about meeting new people every-day.
