I have 20+ years IT/IS experience including assisting teams with applying lean-agile processes and practices (Scrum, XP). In late 2007, I began using the kanban method "hands-on" as part of real world software development teams. Now I'm utizing this experience to teach and coach others to optimize and evolve their processes and practices using flow principles, queueing concepts, and pull methods. I've presented my team's kanban experience reports to Carnegie Mellon University - West Coast Campus graduate level "Metrics for Software Engineers" course, collaborate with leading kanban practitioners, and contribute back to the lean-agile and kanban communities via national conferences, global leadership retreats, and local user groups. For more about me see my blog site at www.vissinc.com.

Outside of the IT/IS space, I have a wonderful wife and two great kids, and enjoy as much time as I can get with them, often in these activities: fishing, dove and turkey hunting, cub scouting, kettlebell workouts, and even a little drumming when I can squeeze that in.
