Seattle, Washington, US
Seattle sailor, transplanted from the Northeast, who brings passion, perspective, and patience to helping teams and organizations work happily. At the core of my practice is profound respect for people.
I appreciate theory but embrace practice, and I love learning more about what I dislike or oppose; turns out I change my mind more often than one would think.
I've spent 35 years building software, and a decade ago spent years on an XP team. That great start led to my having been on, worked with, and gotten started many Scrum teams, and have appreciated and embraced lean and systems thinking in recent years.
