As a Freelance Consultant and Developer, I help customers on site to transform towards an agile approach to Software / Hardware Development. By working together with the existing product team, I can focus on building capabilities in the team while working together on delivering value continuously.

I spend my time continuously delivering software and hardware systems using test-first methodologies. Working in close collaboration with fellow developers, designers, business analysts and product owners by pairing and on-site teamwork is a necessity to successfully realize a product vision.
I am a Generalist.
