I am a passionate agile information technology professional with extensive international software development experience using agile methodologies and a leading thinker in applying Agile/Lean/Scrum for process improvements and coaching. Over fourteen years experience in programming object-oriented systems and in search of advancing my craft into bridging the gap between business and technology made me a versatile, highly productive software engineer and agile coach.
