Insight Digital Innovation
Thirteen years ago when I first joined Insight Digital Innovation (formerly Cardinal Solutions), I started on a Scrum team. While I was skeptical at first, I quickly found the approach empowering and energizing as I participated in creating and delivering valuable software that delighted our customers. And I haven't turned back - since joining my first Scrum team, I have been a Development Team member, Scrum Master, Product Owner, and coach.
As a sought-out speaker and trainer, I have created and delivered training on a range of Agile and Business Analysis topics and given presentations at variety regional industry groups and conferences, in addition to the international Agile 2014 convention. I have plenty of successes, cuts, and bruises that I love to draw upon as I'm helping others experience, learn, and improve how they deliver valuable software to their users.
I'm excited to be a part of the Professional Scrum Trainer community, teaching Applying Professional Scrum (APS), Professional Scrum Master (PSM), Professional Scrum Master II (PSM II), and Professional Agile Leadership Essentials (PAL-E) - excellent, impactful courses that are well-maintained by the community of trainers.
Outside of work, I love making music, learning, and enjoying time with my wife and two energetic boys.
