BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Best advice you’ve been given

To always act with intention. Be fully committed to the task at hand and do the best possible job you can, even if the task seems insignificant. In time the job, tasks and responsibilities become larger and more complex but people’s ability to count on you, even for seemingly trivial things, is incredibly important.

Next big thing in insurance

I am following a lot of the emerging tech disrupting insurers and intermediaries, and I think this is a big growth area for our industry. Coupled with the changing workforce including retiring baby boomers, I see a big opportunity to improve the traditional way in which insurers/ brokers/insureds transmit information and work with one another.

How do you unwind?

I am an avid runner and I find that whenever I run, I allow my mind to leave me for a brief period of time. It’s a feeling for me that’s very akin to meditating. It elevates my mood and helps me relax.

Something people don’t know about you

I grew up in Miami and experienced firsthand one of the greatest insurance losses of all time: Hurricane Andrew in 1992. I remember how the insurance company gave our family a place to live after the storm and then rebuilt our house after it was razed. This experience taught me a lot about dealing with loss and the importance of what we do in the insurance industry.
