Software has the ability to change the world. I partner with people who want to change the world of software development.

A creative facilitator, a coach who services a more agile future, a dependable thinking partner. I help people discover their agile instincts and develop their coaching abilities.

My current areas of focus include:

  • Developing organizational change strategy, including the formation of agile communities of practice
  • Coaching Scrum Masters, agile team coaches, and anyone in software development who wants to improve work relationships
  • Facilitating team and organizational workshops to enhance collaboration
  • Public speaking and mentoring others to contribute to the agile community

I have presented at many conferences, including Keep Austin Agile, Scrum Gathering, Dallas and Houston TechFests, UTDallas Project Management Symposium, and PMI Professional Development conferences. A big believer in the power of communities, I regularly attend agile meetups in the Dallas area and agile coach camps in the US and Canada.

I am a Principal Consultant with Improving and a member of Theta Tau Professional Engineering Fraternity

An advocate for professional development, I have obtained a number of certifications--Certified Professional in Agile Coaching (ICP-AC), Certified Professional in Agile Team Facilitation (ICP-ATF), Certified Scrum Master (CSM), Certified Scrum Professional (CSP), PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP), Project Management Professional (PMP), Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I), and Professional Scrum Product Owner I (PSPO I)--too many certifications to fit neatly in an email signature.  Additionally, I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach through the Coaches Training Institute, the largest and oldest coaching training school.
