I am an Agile Coach and Product owner. I pursue my passion for coaching software organizations of all sizes incrementally adopt Agile and Lean practices to build collaborative cultures and deliver lasting value early and often. I believe it is important to continually be learning and growing. My dream is to be a lifelong learner; growing each day. I am also passionate about leadership development and seeing people reach their full potential. I have 13 years of professional experience spanning the software life-cycle. I began my career as a software engineer but last 8 years I am focused on helping teams adopt lean incremental, iterative approaches.. I also hold PhD in Computer Science-Economics. When I am not Coaching you can find me messing around with Product management work.I am an Agile Coach and Product owner.
