David has a true passion for teaching and coaching others in the mindset and principles of Agile. After discovering Large Scale Scrum, and taking Craig Larman's CLP course, he was able to see how the organizational design at his own company was hindering agility and value delivery to their customers. After some time he found enough volunteers in the organization to try adopting LeSS ways of working. One area of specialty he has is in facilitating LeSS events such as Overall Product Backlog Refinement, Multi-Team Product Backlog Refinement, and Sprint Planning Part 1 & 2.
David has experience as an eCommerce entrepreneur, a business analyst on a Scrum team, as well as 6 years as a Scrum Master (2.5 years in LeSS).
David's experience has been in the banking, fintech, healthcare, and eCommerce sectors.
David gives back to the LeSS community by co-hosting the Twin Cities Large Scale Scrum meetup, inviting influential members of the community to share their LeSS experiences and teach them back to others.
In David's free time, he enjoys cooking in his Wok, listening to music, going to the gym, taking his 2 dogs hiking, managing various communities, and researching new technology trends.
