Since before “agile” became a buzzword, I’ve been working to help groups of individuals become high functioning teams, and inspiring people to identify the changes they could make to improve.
I’ve studied software methodologies for over 13 years, worked in many roles including as a software developer, DBA, software team lead, Scrum Master, Product Owner, and agile and lean practitioner and coach, and I’ve been through all the struggles each of these face. I love working with people, mentoring them, resolving conflicts, and inspiring change.
I like to think of processes as a "pick ‘n’ mix” stand - you wouldn’t fill up on all the same sweets when there’s all that variety to choose from. With this in mind, I’ve learned as much as I can about as many techniques as possible - “agile” or otherwise - to be as flexible as possible for any challenge that may present itself. Every situation, and every team, is different, and there are no silver bullets - but that’s what keeps this field so exciting!
I am currently unavailable for freelance work, but if you have any questions, comments or feedback, simply send me an email and I'll get back to you in the next few days!
