Independent Insurance Agent – Insurance Brokers of MN

Tell me a little about you: where are you from?
I grew up in East Bloomington and one of my first jobs was working at Shakey’s Pizza in Richfield! I have a Bachelor’s degree from the University of St. Thomas. My wife, Rachael, and I have been married for 17 years. We have two teenage daughters, Emily and Jenna. We live in South Minneapolis and enjoy spending time in town or up North at our cabin.


Please describe what company you are with, your
job title, and what you do for this company.
I am an independent insurance agent and have my own agency – Insurance Brokers of Minnesota. We represent over 50 + companies so we can shop the insurance market for you to find the best coverage and lowest premiums. My agency offers all lines of insurance: Home, Auto, Life, Health, and Business Insurance. My staff and I can help with all your insurance needs!


What inspired you to join the Chamber?
Steve Lindgren approached me to join the Chamber touting the benefits of getting to know other small business owners and local government officials as a way of networking and supporting each other. My experience has been very positive and I recommend Chamber membership to both new and existing business.


What do you do when you are not at
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. We enjoy recreating at our cabin or biking the city lakes. I love to hunt and fish!
