Hi! I am a Project Manager with 13 years’ experience with developers primarily in financial services and healthcare. I’ve successfully managed numerous projects through all phases of SDLC, many from Requirements – Maintenance. As a Scrum Master I’m usually working with 2 – 3 teams. I’ve facilitated all Scrum ceremonies multiple times; been coach to Kanban teams and organizations transitioning to Agile. My previous managers will attest to my knowledge, skills, and Servant Leadership. I have 10 years’ experience with Jira and Confluence, and more with MS Project, SharePoint, and a variety of EPPM tools. I’m completing SAFE and LeSS training. I hold degrees in Information Technology and in Business, PMP and CSM certifications, and Agile Frameworks training at Harvard Business School. I’m a single dad who enjoys teaching evening undergrad courses, write occasionally on LinkedIn.com, and love spending time with my hopelessly spoiled Bichon ; and I am passionate about delivering exceptional results.
