Hard work is not a punishment. It’s an attitude...Hard work will always beat talent, when talent doesn't work hard.

My road in life has been direct.
Born and raised in Michigan.
His father and grandfather both worked in the insurance industry—says that inspired him to pursue that career path as well.
Attended Olivet College where he earned a bachelor’s degree in insurance and risk management.
Right out of college, he had an internship that let him experience multiple different aspects of the insurance industry—discovered he loved working in the wholesale market.
Got his first full-time job through a broker he met while doing his internship—this experience steered him towards his niche in the transportation sector, which is where he’s been ever since.
He now manages a team that is responsible for mitigating transportation-based insurance risks for a variety of clients.
Says his favorite part of his job is the competition and trying to be the best at what he does.
Prides himself on his work ethic and his willingness to go above and beyond for his customers: “I sold myself on service.”

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

You have to be comfortable in a fast-paced and competitive environment. If you aren't comfortable with that right now, then you will definitely need to practice.

The Noise I Shed

From Myself:

"You are so fake."

I find myself often thinking this when I am being polite and cordial to my competitors, when we both know we don't like each other. I don't think there is anything wrong with being competitive and showing that. I had to realize that I am not being paid to like my competitors, I'm being paid to advocate for my clients.

Challenges I Overcame

Financial

Starting out in this career was a challenge. You don't make a lot to start out with so there were times when I was eating sandwiches for lunch and dinner and barely making rent.

First-Generation College Student
First-Generation College Student

My relatives were in the insurance industry and this inspired me to do the same, but I wanted to do it differently. Going to college was that first step.

Racial Discrimination
Racial Discrimination

My sector of insurance is largely white male dominated, so my race was often a deterrent. I had to be better and more determined than everyone around me.
