Over the past 20 years I’ve had the opportunity to learn from different companies and contexts what distinguishes healthy, motivated, high performing teams from all the rest. I started my career as a full stack developer, working at companies that use agile methodologies, starting with eXtreme Programming and later Scrum in California. By 2010 I was taking on Scrum Master roles at my assignments, and I’ve been working as a full time team coach for the last 7 years.
I am passionate about team coaching. Supporting and helping teams reach their full potential. Finding ways to achieve organizational goals while developing people and teams. Making the impossible, possible, by deliberately setting and developing a high performance team culture. Supporting teams through periods of change and growth. Working hands-on with complex challenges by developing people and products.
