I am the Senior Vice President of Engineering at 3Pillar Global, one of the Mid-Atlantic's fastest growing technology companies. In this role I oversee the delivery of technology services to all 3Pillar clients, managing over 50 global client-based engineering teams.

Prior to 3Pillar, I was CTO and SVP of Delivery at the Santeon Group, where I ran their global software development initiatives and their agile coaching practice. At Santeon I provided executive-level coaching to federal agencies and Fortune 100 commercial clients making large-scale transitions to agile. I spent three years as Head of Engineering at TrapWire, oerseeing more than 50 production releases of the company's flagship SaaS product.

Prior to joinging TrapWire, I served as Executive Vice President at Stelligent, and Vice President/Chief Scientist at Digital Focus. I pioneered Digital Focus's use of agile methods in early 2001.

I have worked with a number of organizations—from startups to multibillion-dollar firms—over the course of more than a decade to help them improve their software development processes.
