I am an innovative, results-oriented IT Professional with over 25 years of experience in high-tech, project & portfolio management, consulting services and business operations. I am a Certified Scrum Master (CSM) and have mentored software development teams in support of Agile methods. I have implemented and managed production systems involving multiple geographies, both onshore and offshore. I also have extensive experience with data modeling, business process re-engineering, GIS and systems/software development and software sales and relationship management.
I have been implementing software solutions into production environments since 1982. I have worked in project/program management since 1984. I am a former Masters Certified Oracle DBA and PL/SQL Developer. I am not just technical. When asked to go into sales for Oracle, I closed multi-million dollar software license agreements and over-achieved on quota.
I am a firm believer in Agile for software development, project and portfolio management for large, capital projects and especially like the Scaled Agile Framework.
