Biography

I am passionate about Scrum and currently serve as Agile Coach and Scrum Master of distributed Agile Scrum teams developing applications using .NET MVC, SQL Server, Angular.js, and many other integrated Web technologies. My entire professional life has been devoted to software and the Internet. I began nearly two decades ago when I publish a successful retail Windows cleanup utility called Software Remover Plus (aka WinCleaner). The product was sold in Tiger Direct catalogs and through direct marketing by Parsons Technology. Localized versions were sold in Japan, Italy, and Germany. I later co-founded an Internet Service Provider and hosting company called Sitestar that is today publicly traded. Keeping my development skills current has always been important to me as a manager. To that end I have endeavored to become an accomplished iOS developer and I have built Web services using a number of back-end technologies to deliver enterprise content to mobile devices. In addition to my day job, I follow my passion for mobile app development with consumer products I work on for fun including Debtaculous and VoterTrend.org, both of which are available in the App Store. In addition to my technical skills, my business experience and dual business degrees (BBA from Averett University and MBA from Jack Welch Management Institute) provide an in-depth understanding of the business value that new software products and features bring to companies. This is especially valuable when forming product strategies and priorities.

Articles I've written

Terminal Velocity
Recently, I have come to understand that the classical definition of velocity inadequately defines that value in more dynamic and complex environments.
