An early adopter of Extreme Programming, Scrum and SAFe, I have worked exclusively as a Lean+Agile Transformation leader since 1999.  

I host the Agile Toolkit podcast and have produced over 170 podcasts, recording a variety of industry leaders and Agile practitioners. My consulting and training style is build on years of Lean+Agile experience, a MSEE in Computer Architectures for Artificial Intelligence and having grown up working in my family’s restaurant, so you can expect a blend of technical excellence and customer service.


Because of my interest in philanthropy, I founded the AgileDC conference, a “For-Benefit” event put on by volunteers from the Agile community.   All proceeds from this unique event go to charity.  Contact me if you want to get involved with AgileDC; we’d love your help!


I am a Certified Scrum Master, Certified Scrum Professional, and SAFe Program Consultant 4.
