I started my software development journey as a student at Washington University in St. Louis. My first job was at Lantern corporation, a small startup in St. Louis, developing components of the Voyager multidimensional data browser. This application was used by NASA and EPA to visualize and animate global air quality data.
After graduating from college, I started working as a software design engineer at Microsoft. My team built the first Microsoft business intelligence product - Analysis Services, the foundation of today's Power BI product line. After few years, I became the development manager for Analysis Services and helped shipped the first three versions of the product. This experience gave me the foundation that I now use to help other companies improve their software delivery practices.
After 8 years in the Microsoft product development, I decided to do something new and moved to Europe. For the next 4 years, I was part of the Microsoft EMEA regional office managing Microsoft BI and Application Platform marketing.
Since 2009, I have been freelance consultant and coach, helping some of the best regional companies improve the productivity, reduce costs, and increase the quality of their software delivery organizations. I have been doing organizational assessments, agile and lean training and rollouts, team lead training and coaching, and setting up performance management processes.
