Nick started his insurance career with a local State Farm agent and wound up in the E&S wholesale arena at AmWins. With personal and commercial lines under his belt, his well-rounded background made him a great fit at GMI. He’s one of our Business Development reps supporting our Business Auto, Cannabis Transport and General Liability programs. We wanted to catch up with him to find out a little more about our newest team member.
When you are at work, how do you motivate yourself?
The way I stay motivated is by working on a planned schedule. I try to set aside time each day to certain things. This stops the day from being random and allows me to accomplish my goals and stay motivated.
What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
I enjoy getting a chance to speak to people all over the country every day. I feel like it broadens my horizon the more I learn about others.
What did you want to be when growing up?
When I was growing up, I wanted to follow in my Dad’s footsteps and become a video editor, but I ended up following my Mom into the insurance industry. My parents have had a big influence on my life.
What is something unique about you (a fun fact) that few people are aware of?
While it is not a unique skill, I love music and I play the guitar. I used to play shows at my local bars a few years back. I suppose that’s my creative side coming out.
Do you have any programs that you are currently binge-watching?
My wife and I have a habit of starting to binge shows and end up moving on too quickly. One show that we watch though is "Judy Justice". Judge Judy has been one of the people I have been watching since I was a kid, and it is mindless fun.
If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?
I would bring a collection of books (it counts as one thing), a magnifying glass to make fire, and a large tarp for protection from the rain. I’m a practical kind of guy!
