Biography

I am a Project Manager and Agile Advocate coming from a technical background and over 10 years of experience in information technology with a focus on the software development and automotive industry. Despite my international business orientation, I also have 6 years of exposure to Cutting & Bleeding Edge 3D Visualization Technology with a focus on B2C and B2B interactive Marketing & Sales solutions.

I see myself as a non-traditional Project Manager who likes to be hands-on in a project and close to the team. The traditional project management duties are not what make me feel accomplished after a day's work.

I want to see a project succeed with the highest quality possible without going out-of-scope or building up too much technical debt. And I like making a difference where appropriate instead of going the path of the least resistance.
