Biography

Summary of Certifications:
-Certified Scrum Professional (CSP)
-Certified Scrum Master (CSM)
-Project Management Professional (PMI-PMP)

I am an agile enthusiast who believes agile is a state of mind not a "tool" to deliver. Agile focuses on values and principles with people as the key and the way they communicate and interact; allowing them to become the best at what they do in their work and take ownership while delivering high value.

 My current career focus is continuing my passion in lean/agile practices to help companies create self organized, high performing teams that deliver high-value customer centric products while championing creative and innovated minds. I have a special interest in helping start-up and train new agile teams using various agile frameworks like scrum, kanban and the lean-startup method along with the ability to trace back into the PMO for traditional or agile portfolio management that can transcend in across areas beyond IT; such as marketing and education along with scaling agile using frameworks like scaled agile framework (SAFe).

Best words to describe me:
*Team player
*Motivated
*Adaptive
*Astute

Industries:
-Travel, eCommerce, online marketing, financial, healthcare and education

Focus Areas and Experience:
• Agile frameworks-scrum, kanban, extreme programming (XP) and scaling agile (SAFe)
• Agile Project Management/Agile Portfolio Management (APM)
•Agile training-agile 101, scrum, user story writing, management roles in agile, scrum master and product owner
•Application, web and mobile development (mobile site, iOS, Android & Windows)
•Team building/developing self-organized high performing teams
•Delivering high value customer focused products
•Continuous integration and deployment
•Lean thinking and Innovation through the use of the lean start-up method
