I invested my 20's working as a staff software engineer on the ROSE Compiler team at Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL) from 2010-2019.
It was in college that I began to implement project management techniques for the first time in my own life because I had the ambitious goal of completing my 4-year Computer Science degree in only 2 years.
Project management has always been an important part of my life, both personally and professionally, because it has allowed me to accomplish an insane amount of ambitious things with fast turnarounds.
In the real world, what ultimately matters is not just doing things right, but more importantly, doing the right things (strategically)... and doing those things right (structurally).
With only 24 hours in a day and a vast majority of them being spent resting, eating, and relaxing, wouldn't it be nice to figure out a way to squeeze out a little extra productivity from ourselves?
As a Christian, compassion and empathy come naturally to me, which allows me to connect with those around me in an authentic way. And it's this authenticity that allows me to "lead an army" in every aspect of my life.
Becoming a project manager for me was not a direct path straight into the position, but rather a transitional journey from technical software engineer to willing, motivated, and innovative team player.
The Manifesto for Agile Software Development was created in 2001 to lay out a valuable framework for thinking about how we do things (with agility) without prescribing exactly what we do. (e.g. Scrum, Kanban, etc.)
I'm an ultra-endurance Christian leader, investor, entrepreneur, creative, programmer, project manager, athlete, & family man originating from South Africa and residing in the Silicon Valley of California.
