Biography

I love finding ways to improve. With software I achieve this through comprehensive QA management including design assistance, test planning, test cases, test automation, test measurement, and targeted reporting. I have 15 years of experience in technical team leadership and management. I have extensive process implementation and refinement experience and have helped improve the processes of every organization I have worked with.
