After high school, I moved to Houston, TX to start my career in insurance. I’ve always had a passion for helping people and insurance seemed like a perfect fit for me to use my skills to help guide everyday people through the numerous hoops and challenges of modern-day insurance. With hard work and a strong dedication for helping people, I was able to open up my own insurance agency in Houston with Allstate in 2014. After running a successful Allstate Agency for four years I realized something was still missing, family. I decided to sell my agency, move back to Austin and marry the love of my life Lauren.

I interviewed with several insurance companies in Austin to start another agency but something in me had changed since moving back. Opening another Agency wasn’t good enough. I needed to find a better way to truly help people without being bogged down by a big corporation holding me back at every turn. I came across Cage Free Care and almost instantly knew I had found my new calling. Cage Free Care was still in its infancy and was only offering emergency room packages at the time and I knew I had my work cut out for me. Working tirelessly with our CEO Isaac Higgins, we developed the sports package, increased the benefits to our emergency room package while creating our direct primary care offerings.




I am building a brand new healthcare model. In my model, we use Cage Free Care as online platform that allows medical providers to sell services directly to patients in the form of memberships. By providing services directly to the patient and cutting out the middle man we would drastically reduce the waste in the current system. Providers are able to sell and manage their own memberships in the form of 12-month packages. Similar to gym memberships, members pay a monthly fee for access to set services such as Primary care, Telemedicine, Urgent care, and even Emergency medicine.

With this idea, I saw an opportunity to help millions of people. So, on October 4th, 2017 I registered Cage Free Care as a company. Through this platform, I plan to empower both the patients and providers in creating a better healthcare system for
