I got into the insurance business in 1998 when my wife and I operated our own Nationwide Agency. We merged our agency with Park DeFinis in April 2019. I have ample experience with personal lines of insurance like auto, property and life, along with business owner coverages. I’ve seen quite a bit in my time and am capable of delivering an exceptional client experience in these fast paced times.I enjoy reducing the exposure to risk each of my clients face. I feel good when I’ve helped people recover from financial loss and injury because they have a plan tailored to their needs and budget .

I grew up right here in Delaware County in Media. I attended Malvern Prep for High School and graduated from the University of Richmond after that. I enjoy spending time with my wife and 4 growing children. We’ve experienced many vacations, ball games, and family events together. We’re always running from one practice or event to another! I love gangster movies and shows like The Sopranos, Goodfellas, Casino, The GodFather and many more.

I’ve volunteered with my local Brandywine Youth Club as coach, served as Athletic Director and basketball coach at Saint Cornelius Parish in Chadds Ford PA, worked as Treasurer for the Garnet Valley 5th Quarter Club, a booster program for Garnet Valley Football, and been President of our neighborhood homeowner association, just to name a few.

I started doing auto insurance verification for a car leasing company back in 1986. In 1988 I moved on to working for an insurance agent, and I’ve worked in agencies ever since! I was with the same agent from 1988 until 2007, almost 20 years! I was with my most recent agent for over 10 years until he retired, and now I am with the Pabody/Clewell Agency. I love being able to help out people with their problems and save them some money along the way. I also enjoy being able to help out anyone in my agency who needs the extra hand. My favorite thing to do in insurance is quoting. I love messing around with numbers and solving problems. And when I can save someone money by writing them a new policy, it’s just a great feeling!

I was born in Baltimore (the Woodlawn area) but moved to PA when I was just 8 years old. Since then I’ve lived in Stewartstown, PA – never lived anywhere else. In my free time, I DO like to crochet! Crafts are a big hobby for me. I also love listening to music and watching movies.I love to just relax and spend my time doing nothing – to me that’s the best weekend! My favorite way to do that is going camping!!

I have been with the Pabody Agency since December of 2012, I specialize in farm and commercial insurance. I also handle the crop insurance for the agency.
I’m fond of meeting the different farmers from different states, PA, MD, and NY. I see and learn something every day I visit a new farmer; they share their trials in the farming industry and how they have survived. I enjoy agriculture and how it provides for the world, farming of the past and the future. I appreciate how things were done years ago and how it is done now and where will it be in the future.

I grew up on a farm in Blackford County Indiana. We raised cattle and crops as I grew up, making lots of hay the hard way. In my free time, I like to “tinker” with various things, yard work, garden etc.

I have been a member of the Hunterstown Ruritan since 2003 and have served on the Ruritan National Board of Directors. I am a charter member of the Friends of The Medal of Honor Grove at Valley Forge, PA and a member of the PA Farm Bureau.

I was born in Philadelphia and grew up in the surrounding area suburbs. I went to Lansdale Catholic High School and went on to study at Penn State.
