I grew up in a farming and ranching atmosphere in west Texas. Later, my parents had businesses in Insurance and Real Estate. I worked on a couple of ranches and had other jobs before I decided to follow my parents footsteps in the Insurance Industry. I began my Insurance Agency in 1989, in a small town in Texas. We now have two locations to serve the great folks in Texas and New Mexico one in Dimmitt, TX and our other in Portales, NM. I travel often, visiting our clients in Texas and New Mexico. I believe face to face communication still needs to exist in the Insurance Industry. I am involved in 3rd and Kilgore Church of Christ, where I serve as a Deacon. Family is really important to me. My wife, Robin and I enjoy researching family history on both sides of our families. Our children, Shadarah and Natalie, now live in Lubbock. We enjoy spending time with them and their friends. Recently, we have moved my sister, Teri, to Portales and have enjoyed spending time with her. I enjoy serving clients to help guide them in insurance decisions. I think education and understanding what someone is purchasing gives them more confidence in knowing what to buy for their specific needs.
