Professional Profile

I am a seasoned Certified SCRUM Product Owner with extensive experience in Agile software development.

In the past five years, I have successfully executed aggressive product roadmaps while at the same time reducing the product technical debt and managing the software releases across many SCRUM teams.

My previous experience as a developer enables me to effectively bridge the gap between Product, Development and Customers, defining requirements and managing change through the entire product life-cycle.

As a Product Owner, I am a passionate innovator, a user advocate and a process-driven professional.
