My name is Richard and I've been calling Seattle, WA my home since 08. I was born in the Philippines and grew up as a military brat all over the world. I spent a good amount of my formative years in Florida.

I moved to Seattle after college to work for Boeing as an Industrial Engineer. After 11 years with Boeing, I decided to switch to a new opportunity with Amazon as a Sr. Program Manager.

I received my BS in Industrial Engineering back in 2008 from the University of Central Florida. I am a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt with several years of experience with Lean / Six Sigma / Agile / Scrum methodologies. I am also very passionate about Diversity & Inclusion and it’s role in driving innovation for improving overall business performance and strategy.

Back In 2014, I earned my MBA from the University of Washington's Foster School of Business. I plan to further develop my technical skills by pursuing opportunities with Advanced Data Visualization / Analytics, Lean / Scrum / Agile Methodologies, and Innovative Product / Process Development. I enjoy being a life long learner and I am always open to challenging myself with learning new skills and iterating on ideas.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband Shawn, playing with my pets, and visiting with friends and family all around the world. My ultimate goal is to continuously immerse myself in new cultures and foreign experiences.
