I believe in the resilience of teams and leaders in the VUCA world by living the Agile Values and Principles.  Mindset comes first, practices follow.

Over 20 years ago, I started working and managing software development projects from initiation through operations and maintenance. When I discovered Agile in 2005, I was hooked.  Now I focus on improving our work-lives through the agile mindset and practices; as an engineer, scrum master then coach. My coaching and teaching ranged from small teams to large transformations at more than 15 organizations from public sector and commercial firms.  Currently, I proudly lead Freddie Mac’s Modern Delivery, Agile Center of Excellence, to reinforce the transformation while expanding our agile capabilities across the firm.  

My education includes a Master of Science in Engineering Management from George Washington University, as well as several agile certifications from ICAgile, Scrum Alliance, Scaled Agile, and Project Management Institute.
