My staff and I share a passion for Customer Service and involvement in the Local, Regional and Statewide communities we service, including Teaneck, Bergenfield, Hackensack, Bogota, Tenafly, Englewood, Englewood Cliffs, Paramus, Ridgefield Park, River Edge, Closter, Cresskill, Elmwood Park, Mahwah, Maywood, and Paterson, and Counties like Bergen County, Morris County, Passaic County, Sussex County, Essex County, Union County, Hudson County, and the entire state of New Jersey.
I was born and raised in Passaic, NJ and graduated from Hampton Institute (now Hampton University) in 1968. I returned to NJ to help care for my widowed mother, and was fortunate to land a Management Trainee position with State Farm Insurance almost immediately.
1970 was a momentous year for me: I met and married the love of my life, Stephanie Barboza, and found the passion of my professional life by transitioning from Corporate to become a State Farm Agent - one of the first State Farm African-American Agents!
Over the past 52 years, I have been blessed to be able to serve as a mentor and counselor to both organizations and individuals, including generations of State Farm agents. My State Farm achievements include Select Agent, Legion of Honor, Honor Agent, CAC Club, Half-Million Dollar Award, and the Bronze Tablet.
A key element of my philosophy has been to be able to give back to the Community, like a "Good Neighbor". I am involved with local, regional and state N.A.A.C.P. chapters, Hampton University alumni activities, the Alice Benekin Scholarship Board, the American Red Cross and the Teaneck Chamber of Commerce.
I enjoy spending time with Stephanie and our extended family, puttering around the garden, continuing my life-long study/daily practice of Tai-Chi, and traveling to see our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Of course, my most cherished achievement has been the ability of our staff and I to meet the needs of the thousands of Policyholders that have put their faith and trust in our desire to help them with their Insurance needs for their families and businesses.
