State Farm, Software Developer

Currently, I am a Software Developer at State Farm. My primary focus has been helping to enable and mature State Farm’s CI/CD practices for public cloud and Kubernetes environments. I began my career in retail management before being blessed with the opportunity to return to school. In 2015 I earned my Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering degree from Arizona State University. I like to tell people I took the ‘scenic route’ through college, but it is more of a reminder that it’s never too late to achieve your dreams.

I’ve been married to my fantastic wife for 11 years and we have 2 (mostly) wonderful children. They are ages 6 and 4 and do their best to keep us on our toes. My wife and I both enjoy fitness and the outdoors.
