Scott has been an agent for Rural Ag Insurance Services since January of 2003 and is now the owner of the agency beginning January of 2014.

Born and raised in the Porterville area, Scott got an early start in agriculture through his folks’ family-owned hay and cattle business. Needless to say, Scott spent most of his school breaks bucking hay and branding cattle. From the field to the classroom, Scott studied Ag Business at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, with an emphasis in agricultural marketing. Scott and his wife, Kirsten, have two young daughters, Chloe and Livia.

Since joining Rural Ag Insurance Services, Scott has gained valuable experience and knowledge. He looks forward to assisting current and prospective clients with their insurance needs.
