I currently work as an Agile Coach and Trainer worldwide, based in São Paulo. I write articles, e-books, and speak in conferences when my availability allows. I have been working with Agile since late 2004 and in addition to speaking at Agile/Scrum, Lean Six Sigma and PMI conferences, I am the founder of several Scrum user groups on FB as well as discussion lists. Since Jan 2011 I work as a Certified Scrum Trainer at Massimus (http://www.massimus.com) a company with a single mission: help shape people and corporations for the XXI century. I hold a M.Sc. in Information Technology from the University of Stuttgart, Germany. In the last 20+ years have worked and gathered experience in companies like Yamaha Motor Company, Itautec-Philco SA, DaimlerChrysler AG, Fraunhofer Institut, FPF (Fundação Paulo Feitoza), among others. I have hands on experience working for 3 years as a ScrumMaster and Product Owner for FPF and Siemens-Mobile where I also coached teams to implement and improve Scrum in constructing products. During 2+ years I worked as Information Manager for the local government at an Institute of Urban Planning where I applied Scrum outside of software (back in 2009), in architectural and building projects. I participated as a research assistant in projects funded by project LBA (Large-scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia) at INPA (http://www.inpa.br) in cooperation with JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) and NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Agency). Since 2011 I have coached from small to Fortune 100 enterprises in Brazil, Europe and USA and so far have trained over 5,000 professionals. I am also a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu purple belt, so don’t mess with me.
