I'm a Scrum Master and Project Manager based in London, United Kingdom.
During my 9 years as an agilist so far, I have had the pleasure of working with a number of highly talented teams on a wide variety of projects.
I enjoy hands-on project management, working together with a multi-disciplined team to deliver software projects. I started my career as a developer and I tend to have a sound technical understanding of most problems I come across, helping me to guide and coach teams and product owners to find solutions that work for their projects and circumstances.
As a strong believer in self-organising agile the teams, I see my role primarily as being a facilitator, working with the team and their Product Owner to help them find the process that works best for them, whether it is Scrum, Kanban or something else.
