From Ken:

Agile coach with a strong development background. I’ve worked with agile teams in various capacities for about the last 12 years, as a developer, Scrum Master, Product Owner, and coach. I’ve worked in a number of different industries, including IT, finance, retail, and government. In addition to my Agile experience, I’ve been developing software for over 20 years.

I hold certifications as a Certified Scrum Master, Certified Scrum Product Owner, and Certified Scrum Professional. I’m also accredited by the Scrum Alliance to lead the Certified Scrum Developer course, and deliver other educational offerings.

In addition to my work in the IT industry, I also serve the community as a paramedic, having worked in the emergency medical services field for over 17 years. I’ve held positions up to and including Fire Captain, but most enjoy my work as a paramedic and Field Training Officer / Preceptor.
