Environmental risks. They’re highly complex. Not to mention having the potential to be dangerous and very messy. With 24 years of combined experience in environmental insurance and engineering consulting, I understand the needs of the market. My team and I will work with you to address your unique needs.

As Chief Underwriting Officer for our environmental insurance unit, my primary responsibilities include managing executive underwriting, policy contract legal counsel and risk control staff. I also lead the group in new product development. Before this position, I was Eastern Regional Manager, Manager of the Assistant Underwriter Staff and Senior Underwriter.

I have 24 years of combined experience in environmental insurance and engineering consulting. Before joining AXA XL, I spent eight years as a project engineer and worked on remedial design projects preparing design packages, performed site characterizations for storm water practices for industrial clients, prepared closure plans for sanitary and hazardous waste landfills and chemical plant facilities and initiated and directed the operation of a geosynthetic testing laboratory.

My Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in civil engineering are from Drexel University. I’m also a certified environmental insurance instructor for more than 15 State Insurance Departments.
