I'm a renaissance man trapped in a specialist's body.  I started out as a biologist and that's why I became an IT guy.  I love science but it doesn't pay the bills.  I've been an IT professional for many years.  I used to be a software developer with an elegant language for a more civilized age.  I became a Quality Assurance Analyst because it's better to give than receive.  I have been a process improvement specialist because it's easier to negotiate with a terrorist than a Methodologist.  But lately, I've been working as a Scrum Master and Agile Coach.  Agile is a philosophy, not a methodology.  I have drunk the Kool-Aid and it tastes good and of course, that's where the money is.  In my current reincarnation, I am focusing on speaking at conferences and writing about agile & IT issues.  In interviews, people often ask how long you've been agile?  My answer is always.  I just didn't know what it was called before.
