Missouri Farm Bureau Insurance was started by a group of Missouri farmers who sought an honest, plain speaking, no-nonsense approach to protecting what was important to them. That same mentality is what drives our company to this day. No matter what you do, what you drive or where you live, we treat you with the same dignity and respect you’d expect from the farmers that started this company. Whenever you need us, if you’re a Missourian, we’re here for you.

I was born in St. Louis County.  Played a lot of sports growing up.  Joined the US Army after high school and became a US Army Paratrooper.  Served for two combat tours in Iraq with the 2/505th Parachute Infantry Regiment.  After that I was relocated to Louisiana where I became a combat advisor for deploying troops.  Specialized in Middle East War Tactics such as Roadside Bombs, suicide vests, small arms attacks, sniper attacks and large scale base over run tactics.  The team and I trained a total of 40 deploying units over the course of 4 years.  Left the Military to return home and go to school for Engineering.  Quickly found myself realizing that my choice was not for me and stumbled into insurance at the end of 2013.

I have a beautiful wife Shelly and 4 wonderful children ages 3,8,9,& 10 and a bulldog named Oscar.  My motivation for my success is my family’s future.
