    I don’t live far from where I was raised, in a small town with a big family just outside of the Salt Lake Valley. I’ve always had a great ability to help others and as an insurance agent, I’m able to do so every single day. What sets me apart from my competitors is always making sure my client’s needs come first and always finding ways to exceed their expectations

     

    I attended college at SLCC and the University of Phoenix while working to make ends meet. While attending school I worked as a painter, a concrete laborer, and even a private banker before deciding to work for my father in 2007. He founded and ran a company by the name of Central Bonds & Insurance, a very successful construction bonding and insurance agency in Midvale, Utah for 40 years. As he retired and sold the agency in 2014, I looked for a meaningful way to continue working within the insurance industry. After meeting with many insurance agencies, I chose to partner with SentryWest Insurance, which has proven time and time again to be one of the best decision I have ever made.

     

    On my free time, I enjoy climbing Utah’s Mountains, cooking, playing the bass guitar, working out and listening to Audio Books. However, the most enjoyable thing for me is campouts and vacations with my wife and two kids.

    In 1978 I became a licensed insurance agent because everyone and every business needs insurance! Helping people understand & improve their insurance with a personal touch while saving them money is very satisfying to me! I focused on insurance in college and graduated from the University of Utah with a B.S. in Finance & Management with an Emphasis in Insurance in 1981. My first job out of college was a commercial lines underwriter with The Travelers Insurance Co. which gave me great expertise! I am an independent insurance broker, which means I work for the client, not the insurance company! I sell all lines of insurance including Business, Auto, Home, Life & Health with many top rated carriers. I specialize in Professional Liability / E&O Insurance for the Real Estate Industry, Attorneys, CPAs, Health Care, Technology, etc.

    My life is full with many interests outside of work! I married Pam Gale in 1979, have 4 married children and 4 grandsons…so far. I love making memories on family vacations, travel, golf, snow & water skiing, hiking, biking and scuba diving. I serve in my Church, on the Surplus Lines Association Board of Directors and help refugees who leave polygamist communities. The beautiful Salt Lake Community has been my home all my life except for 2 years as an LDS missionary in Australia.
