Biography

I’ve worked in IT for many years and have worked on projects covering the entire spectrum of IT work, including project management of software development projects, Data Center Consolidation efforts, Software Delivery Transformation efforts, and Enterprise Data Management initiatives.

I was a Finance major at the University of Maryland, and my early career focused on Corporate Financial Planning, Budgeting, Accounting, and even as local bank Branch Manager roles in various firms in the Washington, DC area.

I’m very passionate about the benefits of Agile and Scaled Agile and look forward to helping companies achieve great things!

Something Awesome:  
I once went on a 2 week Mission trip to Bo, Sierra Leone, Africa to support an orphanage called the Child Rescue Center (CRC).  While there we interacted with the CRC leadership to ensure their needs were being met, worked with the children in the orphanage, and also helped enhance their physical buildings and property.
One particular area I helped on was the digging of drainage ditches to allow for proper drainage of the rain during the rainy seasons.  I worked with local resources and I imagine it was as close to working in the Peace Corps as I could get.  It was incredibly humbling and rewarding to be alongside the workers.,
