I was born and raised in Washington, Illinois, a small town in Central Illinois with corn and windmills everywhere. With a blue-collar family background, I pride myself in bringing the same work ethic that’s been instilled in me from a young age to my current position with Patterson and Associates. I joined the agency in 2015 upon graduating from Harding University with a degree in Marketing. It didn’t take me long to realize how our agency has earned its Best Practices reputation. By pairing our agency’s resources with my hard-working attitude, I have everything needed to help my clients secure the best Employee Benefits products available on the market. I find it very rewarding that I’m able to assist my clients in finding life and health insurance that will ultimately build an attractive workplace for them and their families.

I’ve held several committee chairs in the Emerging Leaders of Dallas. I received my Accredited Adviser in Insurance designation in September of 2016 and am still working toward obtaining other designations. I’ve been married to my wife Cami since January of 2017. We love spending time with friends and family, being outside with our dog Yeti, and trying out new restaurants in Dallas. I really enjoy watching and playing all sports, and I’m a die-hard Cleveland and Ohio State fan.
