As a Agile coach & scrum master my goal is to support and guide teams through their agile transformation, whilst being a change agent and catalyst for improvements.  Be it either new teams, departments or organisations whom are transitioning to Agile, or those who are looking to move to the next stage in their evolution, my focus and passion is for enabling and empowering individuals and teams through self organisation and the use of Scrum and Agile frameworks.

With over 18 years of IT experience - covering a wide range of industries including Finance, Insurance, Gambling & Gaming, Marketing & Advertising, Retail and Government - I have become skilled to listen carefully and patiently, enabling me to guide and influence successfully at all levels within teams, departments and organisations.
