I've worked with agile approaches since 2001 when I joined an eXtreme Programming team as their "Onsite customer". After working in a range of roles and companies as an agile coach, trainer, and leader, I now focus on helping individuals, either though one on one coaching, or through books and courses that inspire them to grow their agile and leadership skills. I also work part time as an accreditor for ICAgile helping trainers around the world create engaging learning experiences.
