I've been a keen advocate of Scrum since 2004 when I first read Agile Software Development with SCRUM, and adopted it in use at the organisations I worked for at the time. I completed my CSM training in June 2006 with Mike Cohn, and a year later my CSP status followed.

To further expand my understanding of Scrum I completed my CSPO training in August 2013, SAFe Agilist training in April 2014, LeSS training with Craig Larman in 2016 and Scrum@Scale training with Jeff Sutherland in 2017. I've been an Agile practitioner since 2001, and Agile coach for 8 years. I've achieved Certified ScrumMaster Practitioner status, and I'm looking to further extend my certification in the near future.
