Personal Note

I am fully dedicated to my job and strive to achieve the best results for my clients. My emphasis is on resolving claims quickly and effectively. The paramount goal is to keep my clients satisfied by achieving results and keeping open lines of communication in every matter I handle.

During my spare time, I enjoy investing in financial markets and staying abreast of geo-political developments. I take my health and fitness very seriously and dedicate at least one hour each day to exercise, while refining my gourmet cooking skills at home. To add entertainment in my life, I enjoy playing the guitar and particularly enjoy the blues and classic rock music. My intellectual hobby is amateur astronomy and my biggest passion is bow hunting in the rough terrains of our national forests in California.
