About me

For more than 15 years I’ve been professionally making projects fun and financially successful. Most recently I was a Senior Technical Project Manager at Walmart leading software development for several teams. My track record there and throughout my career demonstrates a focus on improving planning, reporting, and Agile project management for entire teams. I’ve worked on programs at small startups to those involving dozens of people with a large number of dependencies and many deliverables. Throughout my career I have a great record of shipping fully realized projects on time. My constant goal is to work with fun and brilliant people releasing acclaimed products.
