I’ve always been passionate about serving others. Meeting people, learning their stories and building plans to fit their lives is what drives me every day. As a local State Farm agent working with people all across Chicago, including the West Town, Portage Park, Ukrainian Village, Wicker Park, Bucktown and Irving Park neighborhoods, it’s an honor to help my customers protect what’s important to them. We also can handle Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Missouri.

Before I opened my State Farm ‘Raygency’ in 2012, I spent several years supporting another State Farm agent, which gave me a strong foundation in communication and customer service. I want my office to be a comfortable, welcoming place, and that’s where my experienced, friendly team comes in. Lessly, Raul, Bob, Angie, Liam, Stephanie, and Beth are always here to support you, answer questions and help you throughout the process. Nothing excites us more than providing creative coverages for our customers. We also LOVE connecting good people with other good people in business!

I grew up right here in Chicago, and I’m proud to support my neighbors the way they’ve always supported me. I serve as a sponsor to help at-risk youth in the area, and I participate in events and races to raise money and awareness for STEM education. Outside the office, I enjoy endurance sports, playing soccer & basketball in our backyard with my four kids, Jack, Abbey, Colin and Etta, and cooking with my wife Julia.
