I’m a renaissance man trapped in a specialist’s body.  My degree is in biology.  That’s why I’m IT.  I’ve worked as a software developer, with an elegant language for a more civilized age.   I became a QA guy because breaking things is therapeutic.  I became a process specialist because it’s easier to negotiate with a terrorist than a Methodologist.  I’ve been a Scrum Master and Agile Coach.  I have drunk the Kool-aid and it tastes good.  Lately, I have been focusing on writing and speaking.  Agile is a philosophy, not a methodology.  I’m often asked how long have you been agile?  My answer: always.
