About Me

After a long and rewarding career managing non-profit projects throughout Europe, I jumped full-force into IT during the .com boom. A few years ago I ran into Scrum and other Agile frameworks. With its emphasis on servant leadership, system thinking, continuous improvement, self organizing teams and delivering value I was hooked.

I’m passionate, about Scrum and Kanban. Huge fan of Lean thinking, Theory of Constraints and of course the Toyota Production System. Avid learner. Deeply influenced by the works of Jeff Sutherland, Ken Schwaber, Eliyahu Goldratt, James P. WomackW. Edwards DemingJeff Patton and countless others. Active in both the PMI and Agile communities in Southern California.

I enjoy spending time with Vic Bonacci and other Agile Coffee pod cast contributors. Finding sponsors for Agile Open Southern California and San Diego is also fun. This activity gives me insights into the fabulous companies and organizations that make up the Agile community in Southern California. I’ve tried to express my respect and appreciation in the SoCal Training and SoCal Hall of Fame.

I’m also into biking (street & off road), motorcycling and the marshal arts. Above all I enjoy thinking, reading and writing with an eye on the future.
