Biography

I'm currently playing the role of Scrum Master in projects at the company. What do I do like most to be a Scrum Master is when we can coach teams and people and contribute to create and foster an environment where innovation, self-management and high productivity are result of a very good performed teamwork, all of this built with motivated people. This is just amazing! 

Also, at HP, I'm enrolled in project management career, role that I'm playing during the last years, managing projects with a few number of engineers (<5) and also, other projects with a large number of engineers (>30-40). Some of the projects that I've been worked were QA related like test automation development and others purely with validation and quality assurance assignments. Other projects were "development oriented" by creating features, bug fixing and all related stuff. 

By the personal side, I like sports and movies. On sports side, I'm an enthusiast of biking! Also I'm a soccer player (goalkeeper), inline skating and - finally - skyrunner apprentice :). I'm also involved in being a husband and a father of 3 kids :)

This is just a very little summary about  me :)
