    A long-time agile coach specializing in software architecture, I am the co-founder of Slingboards Lab, a software publisher that is empowering people to get a sense of fulfillment. An experimenter and an entrepreneur, I love to seize the opportunities that emerge from the unexpected. An experienced Scrum practitioner, I have spent more than 20 years designing large-scale information systems. I am the author of the book "Executable Specifications with Scrum". My friends like to describe me as someone who can extract the essence of a complicated situation, sort out the core ideas from the incidental distractions and provide a summary that is easy to understand.
