As the leader of our Property & Casualty insurance division, I provide a distinguished business model serving the customers we love while creating strong, sustained growth and profitability.  Born in the palmetto state and raised deep in the heart of Texas, I come from humble beginnings. As a product of adversity, I was molded by the perseverance and determination of my family of 13, with 4 bothers and 8 sisters to be great in all facets of my life.  I was awarded an athletic scholarship to attend Northern Illinois University with a goal of becoming a professional athlete.  With an established history of exceeding expectations in the insurance industry, I come to Valor with excitement as I build a long-lasting legacy.

I started my career in 2019 as it aligned with my values and mission to help others. I enjoy helping my clients set financial order to their lives, and I consider many of them family due to the relationships we have built. In my free time, I enjoy reading non fictional books, watching CSI shows, and spending time with my wife. My goal is to help the Hispanic community get the right mentorship and tools needed to be successful and thrive in this industry.
