agile-transformation coaching distributed teams remote co-workers

I have cultivated more distributed, dispersed, and virtual teams than colocated teams for more than two decades. Since 2014, I serve as an agile coach with Sonatype, a “remote first” software development company focusing on automation of software supply chains. Previously, I led agile transformations, from startups to Fortune 500 companies. I also cultivates dispersed communities, such as Agile Orlando, Agile Florida,, and the Agile Alliance Community Group Support initiative.  My book, From Chaos to Successful Distributed Agile Teams, is co-authored with Johanna Rothman and is available at in print and e-book form at

I've held many roles over the years including senior developer, architect, manager, researcher, rocket scientist and more, but my favorite roles these days are teacher, mentor, rebuilder, and dad (which was a primary motivation for working remotely.)
