Greetings. I am an experienced Certified Scrum Master and Agilest with about four years’ experience in SCRUM and SCRUM/Kanban Methodologies. Previously, I was a Software Developer and a Business/Systems Analyst with about 20 years’ experience in telecommunications, Aeronautics, Construction Engineering, and Healthcare. Lately I have been challenged with projects as a Project Manager, Process Manager, Project Coordinator, Product Owner, and Scrum Master & Coach. During this time, I have utilized various methods and tool sets in order to meet our stakeholder’s needs. Becoming Agile, especially learning Scrum and Kanban, was like a breath of renewed fresh air, especially for those underfunded, over scoped feature sets for prior projects teams I participated in. It was a spark that re-opened my mind to new aspects of Software Engineering. It has become one of my more exciting tools that I utilize to accomplish meeting business needs. I look forward to the challenges that the future will present as I seek certification as a Scrum Coach.
