Milestones

Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Born and raised in Utah on a farm—says he knew it was a lifestyle he didn’t want for his future, but it taught him the value of hard work.
A lot of his childhood was impacted by his interest in the outdoors and sports.
Right out of high school, he served on a church mission for two years.
Attended Salt Lake Community College with the goal of one day becoming a lawyer.
After an internship at a law office, he decided that was not the path for him, and went on to earn an associate’s degree in business.
A year into college, he got married and was starting a family when he found himself in need of some extra money—was hired on by an insurance company as an underwriter.
Shortly after, he was recruited to work for Veracity Insurance Solutions as a broker with a focus on the outdoor recreation industry and has worked there ever since.
His expertise in the insurance industry covers many areas, but he has maintained a specific focus on outdoor activities like rock climbing, ropes courses, zip lines, and adventure parks.

Day to Day

On a daily basis, I help insurance agents place risks that are harder to place. I get to work usually around 7 am and I spend my morning checking and responding to emails. I go to a lot of meetings about policy renewals, I take phone calls from prospective clients, and keep in touch with current clients in order to increase our business.

The Noise I Shed

From Myself:

"I love working on the farm, but I don't think I can make this work long term."

I didn't really overcome this, it evolved into an understanding. I eventually realized that working on the farm was not going to provide the kind of life I wanted to live. That's when I started exploring other options and figuring out how I could combine aspects of that life into a career I loved.
