My main toolkit descends from Extreme Programming, and I've picked up quite a few other techniques from the Modern Agile and DevOps communities as well. In every case, the most effective teams are the ones that iterate to discover the practices that truly allow them to make the best software in the least amount of time.I am an engineering practitioner, leader, and organizer. I'm at my best when I am helping people reach higher levels of their own potential. I'm as comfortable mentoring engineers through a tricky bit of code as I am guiding an engineering team towards iterative, continuous value delivery. I know I'm succeeding when people are more awesome because of me.
