I’m currently an Architecture Manager at State Farm. I’ve worked as a software developer throughout my career starting in the Philippines where I was born and raised. I had the opportunity to work in Finland and in India at a consulting capacity before joining State Farm in 2006 first as a consultant, and a permanent employee in 2010.
I own and drive the Delivery Engineering topic at State Farm where I continuously simplify how code change ultimately makes it to the hands of our customers.
