I am a Certified ScrumMaster and Product Owner with a background in computer science, project management and business analysis. My professional interest is in the management of people and projects. While I've participated in many efforts through the years, in the last decade or so as companies move away from strict traditional software development processes, I've focused on agile project management methodologies and usability.
I'm fortunate to have worked in a wide variety of industries like energy, trading, training, insurance, publishing, game development and nonprofit. I enjoy being around smart/motivated people, working in creative technical environments, and learning. I have first-hand experience of the benefits of using lightweight methods and working in more iterative ways, and feel extremely proud when the teams I work with do great things!
I believe in moving work forward by simplifying processes, communicating clearly and focusing on strengths. I have a service-oriented personality and a facilitative work style that encourages collaborative groups to build usable, high-quality systems.
