Work experience

Ask.com, Scrum Master/Scrum Evangelizer!
November 2007 - Present, Oakland, California, United States
At Ask.com I manage 3 Scrum teams (Our Mobile Apps team, our Content Page team and our Classification & Language Technologies team). I also lead Scrum training and "refreshers" for new or existing Scrum teams at Ask.com. Ask.com started using Scrum instead of Waterfall in 2010. I have almost exclusively managed Scrum teams and performed Scrum orientation and training for new Scrum teams since November 2010 and have at least 2,200 hours using Scrum so far! (most likely more)
