Biography

I was born in 1981 in a city north east of Ho Chi Minh City. After the Vietnam war my whole family escaped to Germany where I grew up. I went to Kindergarten, Elementary School, passed my A-level and finished an apprenticeship in media design. But my education path should not end here and I decided to study OnlineMedia in a small city called Furtwangen. Over the years I have done different jobs. Paperboy, Supermarket Cashier, Intern in a tax accounting company, photograph assistant, Intern in an architecture bureau in northern London, Intern in some advertising agencies and web development freelancer.

When I read my self-written Bio I would call me a "generalist". A prerequisite to be a project manager ;)

I moved to Vietnam in 2009. Back to the roots of my parents and grand parents. I heard from SCRUM during my studies but did not really had a clue what it is. In Vietnam I got in touch the first time with SCRUM. After 1 year practical experiences with some SCRUM elements, I had in June 2010 the chance to participate the Scrum Master Certification course in Zürich.

Since Februrary 2011 I have promoted Scrum and Agile principle in Vietnam and grown a community of more than 600 people in the South. In addition I work very close with the Hanoi Scrum team in the North of Vietnam to train, share Scrum knowledge.

If we one day see each other for random on the street you can talk to me in English, German, Vietnamese, Spanish and French. If you are from China, I can say hello and show you the direction :D

Cheers!
