NW Corner San Marino & Huntington

I grew up in San Marino and graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a degree in Management Science. My first job out of college was trading crude oil and natural gas options on the NYMEX and it gave me the freedom to return to my hometown.

Once back in San Marino, I was able to start a family and focus on my true passion for helping others by opening my State Farm agency in 2011. With honesty and transparency at the forefront of everything we do, my State Farm San Marino, CA office is committed to getting you the coverage you deserve with auto insurance, homeowners insurance, life insurance, business insurance, and more.

My team of friendly, knowledgeable and multilingual (Mandarin, Tagalog, Taiwanese, Cantonese and Vietnamese) insurance professionals are committed to helping our customers protect what’s most important to them so they are confidently prepared for their future. Consistently delivering exceptional service, we go above and beyond to provide personalized policies that fit everyone’s unique needs.

Taking the time to explain your coverage, we are able to ensure there are no gaps in your plan. My team and I do everything in a timely and professional manner with only the interest of our policyholders’ in mind. My agency operates out of San Marino, a small city located in the San Gabriel Valley.

We take great pride in serving local policyholders as well as those living in the cities of Pasadena, Arcadia, Beverly Hills, Irvine — basically, all of Los Angeles and Orange County.

Licensed to service the entire state of California, my State Farm office offers:

● Auto Insurance

● Homeowners & Renters Insurance

● Health Insurance

● Life Insurance

● Small Business Insurance

● And more!

Over the years, State Farm has honored my office multiple times with awards recognizing our commitment to quality service and performance — and so has the industry, culminating in my annual membership in the Million Dollar Round Table. I take my role as a Good Neighbor seriously and am a believer in giving back. By working with local organizations I am able to find fulfillment in improving the lives of others.

When I am away from the office, you can find me spending time with my wonderful wife and daughter. We also have a lovable Japanese Spitz dog named MJ. In addition to being with my family and friends, I enjoy working out, managing fantasy football teams, and watching basketball, soccer, and tennis.

Stop by my State Farm San Marino, CA office anytime. We can’t wait to meet you and are ready to begin discussing your insurance needs. My team and I are available 24/7 to provide personalized service via phone, text, email, or in-office appointments. Want to get started now? Call our office or request a quote online today!

We believe our future is worth insuring.

Because insurance isn't about fearing the future.

It's a promise to protect it.
