My insurance career began in 1992 as a claim representative for State Farm Insurance in Torrance, CA. I continued this path after moving back to Portland in 1995, to start our family. The switch to commercial insurance broker came in 2000 with Marsh. Since then I’ve worked for large national brokers as well as small regional agencies. This unique exposure and experiences allow me to relate to customers of all shapes & sizes no matter what their insurance needs.
For the past 14 + years employed as a commercial insurance broker I have worked with customers in nearly every type of business. Helping individuals and businesses find the best solution to their insurance and risk management needs has brought me great pride.
I’ve developed an area of expertise servicing the transportation industry. The strong relationships I have with markets and industry insiders as well as business owners allow me to bring great value to any company that uses commercial vehicles.
My connection with the Dooney Family goes back to the roots our families share with Central Catholic High School. Over the past few years what has made my experience at Leonard Adams so rewarding is that I am allowed to put the needs of client above all other, to make sure their needs and service levels are being met at all times.
I’ve been married 21 years to my beautiful wife Becki, who works as a Wealth Advisor for Umpqua Bank in Vancouver, WA. Together we have 4 very active children ranging in age from 9 – 18. Any and all free time is spent with my family playing volleyball, running, kicking the soccer ball around or coaching my kids various sport teams.
