After graduating from QHS in 1990, I moved to Idaho, then Texas, and then on to Pennsylvania, where I met my wife Dale. Once we started a family, we decided that the Columbia Basin was the place to be, and are very happy that our three children get to grow up in the fresh air and sunshine of Moses Lake! Originally from Quincy, I moved back to the Basin in 2010 to start an American Family Insurance agency. My favorite part of insurance is helping the hard-working people in our community. We offer home, auto, life, business, and farm/ranch insurance, and take pride in customizing a program for each unique family. Our office is located at 821 E Broadway, next to Eclipse Day Spa. We are open Monday through Saturday, and can be reached at 764-5144.
