Greetings. I am an experienced Certified Scrum Master, Scrum Professional and PMI - Agile Certified Practitioner. I have been an advid Agilest for about 7 years now, with about five years’ of experience in Scrum/ /Kanban Frameworks. Previously, I was a Software Developer and a Business/Systems Analyst with vast experience in Telecommunications, Aeronautics, Construction Engineering, and Healthcare Industries. . During my career, I have utilized various methods, processes, and tool sets in order to meet our stakeholder’s needs. Transforming from UML/RUP and becoming more Agile, especially learning Scrum and Kanban, was like a breath of fresh air, especially for those underfunded, ever changing, and ('waterfall') rigid classical projects I participated in. It was the spark that re-eginited my passion for learning and experiencing new methodologies. It has become one of my more exciting tools that I utilize to accomplish meeting business needs. I look forward to the challenges that the future will present as I seek certification as a Scrum Coach.
