I have been in the insurance business for over 41 years and have vast experience in primarily the Benefits Market, but also I have been re-licensed in Property & Casualty for the past 8 years. My experience ranges from being a Carrier Representative (Hartford, CNA, Aetna, and Sierra Health Services) to a Brokerage General Agent (Empire Benefits) as well as a producer for multi-line agencies (Livermore & Associates, Morgan & Franz, Lovitt & Touche and AmeriSent), I have owned and run my own Independent Agency and Brokerage General Agency and am now the President at Insurance Tigers (a Independent Multi-Line Agency) in Las Vegas, Nevada with primary duties in selling Property & Casualty and Group Medical and Ancillary products, in addition to agency management.
As I said above, I have been a Carrier Representative for approximately 1/2 of my carrier and with those companies I was also a Manager with Hartford, Aetna and Sierra Health Services. I have extensive experience in the Self Funded Market as well as Health Reimbursement Plans, with massive experience in the Group and Ancillary products market. My Property & Casualty experience started in California in 1978 and continued there until I left the state in 1993. It resumed in 2009 as I returned to a producer position in an independent agency.
As rewarding as my career is (I wake up every morning looking forward to going to work) my foundation is with my wife, Justin, of over 34 years. Having a loving, intimate relationship with your best friend is as good as it can get. With her we enjoy our 2 pets, Maggie, a 12 lb. Mini-Min Pin, and Noodle, a finicky, but lovable long-tail cat. I had to give up golf, but am an avid coin collector and dealer of ancient Greek and Roman coins and artifacts. I also have found a great deal of fun and excitement in gold panning with my wife. It is so calming to drift the sand and small rocks out of your pan and occasionally finding the glimmer gold in the catches.
