I am licensed to sell property, casualty, life, and health insurance. I have helped thousands of people buy insurance. In the past 12 years in the insurance business, I've gained in depth knowledge about how the insurance business works. I've learned about insurance policy language and how to interpret the language they use to describe coverage and limitations to coverage. I attended Cal State University San Marcos, in located in Northern San Diego County. The Cal State system focuses on giving students the ability to solve problems by finding information and collaborating in small groups. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in history, with a focus on historical cultures and institutions. My friends and I started Insurance Dodo we saw a need for real information. We don't see many of the other insurance sites giving people the really, nitty gritty info they need to make informed purchasing decisions. My aim is to give people easy to understand advice. Buying insurance is hard. There are a lot of traps that people can fall into. I want to make it easy for people to grasp the concepts so when their worst day arrives, they can financial survive and thrive.
