My passion for agile is lived daily at Growing Agile. My personal motto is ‘be brave’, and I embody this by taking on challenges one small step at a time. On weekends you can find me trail running on a mountain with my 3 dogs.

I regularly speak at international agile conferences and have co-authored a number of books on agile and Scrum. My experience lies mainly in working with teams, Product Owners, Scrum Masters and Managers.
