President, Agent & Risk Advisor
I joined Ted Hamm Insurance in February of 2013. I came from an agency in Washington State and love my surroundings and friends In Paso Robles. I enjoy meeting people and helping others. My business allows me to meet so many interesting people and I find that fascinating and a blessing. I love to be outdoors and I am never as happy as when I have a project to work on at home. I have a small farm and raise olives, fruit and vegetables. I love to read and spend time each day catching up on business trade journals and then in the evening I delve into biographies, history, the classics and for fun an action/adventure novel or a western. I love to hike and walk and spend free time on trails throughout the west coast. My wife and I are passionate about contemporary smooth jazz and we travel to many concerts. We enjoy wine and have a small but growing collection with half the fun discovering wine through travel to vineyards to sample.
