Biography

I started as Scrum Master in 2007. Since then, I also had the roles of Product Owner and Agile team lead, but now I spend most of my time as an Agile Coach. Regardless of the role I have, I love building strong development teams and helping people grow and meet their potential. Colleagues usually describe me enthusiastic, honest and fun to work with (and on one occasion as 'très flamboyant', which sounds about right :-) ). I am certified as Scrum Master, Product Owner and Agile Coach and live in Amsterdam. If you need help getting Scrum off the ground or you are looking for a way to reach that next step, let's talk to see how I can help you.
