"Nobody will hate you for doing worse than them".

For more than 100 years, State Farm has been there to help our customers prepare for and recover from the unexpected. This past year was no different. We helped customers recover from another year of catastrophic events and the life insurance companies continued to be there for our customers,” said Senior Vice President, Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer Jon Farney.

After 15 years of working at Paramount Pictures Studio, I was introduced to State Farm by another State Farm Agent who I have the pleasure to continue to work with. He gave me an opportunity to work at his second agency to help get it up and running. This is when I knew becoming a State Farm Agent was what I wanted to do. Two years later, in 2018 I opened my own agency in Encino serving people in Los Angeles area, including Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys, Chatsworth, Reseda, Toluca Lake, Burbank, Glendale, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and North Hollywood in both English and Spanish.

When I'm not in the office, I love spending time with my wife and 2 children. We are an active family, running the trails of the surrounding area or taking a trip to explore the world. I love to give back to this community that has given me so much.

I’ve always had a desire to help. It truly started when I was a child, I wanted to be a doctor, then when I was a teenager, I wanted to be a psychologist. Both these careers are centered on helping not only physically health but also mental. Little did I know becoming a State Farm Agent would fulfill those passions. Every day I have the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives, helping protect themselves and their loved ones by educating them on their insurance and financial service needs!

Born in  Eagle Rock, I am a California native that has been in Encino for 14 years. Although I began working in insurance in 1996, I started my State Farm career in 2005 and have been with the Shane Taylor State Farm Agency since 2018. I currently hold licenses in property, casualty, accident, health, and life insurance. Although I love the art of cleaning and organizing, I also enjoy spending my time writing, coloring, and doing word puzzles!
