Having nearly 10 years of experience as Agile practitioner, Product Owner and Agile coach, I have worked with hundreds of teams to help them become more customer-centric, efficient and outcome-driven.
I used to work for NTT Communications, Rakuten, Indeed and most recently - for McKinsey & Company Japan, driving large scale Agile transformations across multiple industries and locations as an Enterprise Agile Coach. Now I have my own coaching and consulting business, Agile Apothecary (see "website")
I am passionate about teaching and coaching - nothing can be compared with the joy of helping someone to understand a new concept or to improve the way they are doing something.
I live and work in Tokyo, Japan and do a lot of snowboarding and scuba diving in my free time.
