I was born 1968 in Basel, Switzerland, lived in San Diego, Basel, Bern, and Lausanne. I'm married to Esther, we live in a beautiful old house just outside Lausanne.
I hold a math engineer degree from EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, 1992) and have been working in Software Development for the last 15 years. I'm a Certified Scrum Practitioner / Scrum Master and thoroughly enjoy helping teams boost their productivity through more agile ways of working together. I'm currently training to become a CST in 2008.
Started by wanting to become a "knowledge engineer" (expert systems etc.), I am now much more interested in the human side of collaborative working and knowledge sharing, technology being used as an enabler. Cynefin's narrative-based approach catches much of this, IMHO (see www.cognitive-edge.com).
I now work for SPRiNT-iT Switzerland - consulting, training & coaching Scrum professionals all around Europe, having much fun & learning every day!
My favourite quote could be this: "Wisdom is ofttimes nearer when we stoop than when we soar." (William Wordsworth)
