Welcome to FirstMark!
I spent several years as a writer for newspapers, websites and TV news stations right out of college – I even covered the Mariners for a season, which was a blast! I found my calling as an insurance agent in 2014 and joined the FirstMark Family in 2017. The best thing about being an insurance agent is helping people wade through the murky waters of insurance and gain a better understanding of how to properly protect their families.
My promise to everyone I speak with is that I’ll give the advice that is best for you and your family, even if that means staying with your current insurance carrier. Your family’s financial security is my top priority.
I grew up a military brat, so traveling is in my blood. I’ve been to nearly every state in the US. I’ve been to Italy twice, and speak broken Italian. I graduated from U-Dub in 2005 and married the love of my life, Nina, in 2013. I enjoy doing anything outdoors, but salmon/steelhead fishing and going to baseball games are my favorite pastimes.
Nina and I moved to Portland in 2019 with Duke, our Bernese Mountain Dog, after spending many years together in the Greater Seattle area. We miss Seattle at times, but do enjoy the slower pace of life Portland offers.
