After graduating from college, I joined Independent Insurance Counselors in 1982. I was blessed to have been mentored by my father, James A. Lansford who stressed professional conduct and education. Since most of my clients have little knowledge of insurance, I enjoy the process of informing my clients so they can make an educated decision regarding their protection.
I am a life-long resident of Alvin, but where I grew up included my grandparents’ homestead in West Columbia, Texas A&M at Galveston, and the outdoors. When I am not discussing insurance, I enjoy talking about family, fishing, and golf. Everyone knows of my passion for fishing, but only a few know of my love of music and playing the guitar. A perfect weekend would be fishing in the mornings, dancing with my wife in the evenings, and having a tender prime rib or ribeye.
In my life, I have been blessed to have been associated with some tremendous organizations. I am especially thankful for the Rotary Club of Alvin and the Interact Club of Alvin High School. These organizations provided me with the opportunity to serve. For seven years, I volunteered at The Women’s Center of Brazoria County. As a result, I learned from some amazing people how to put “Service Above Self”.
