about me

Professional: Part of the Agile consulting practice at NTT Data after running the PMO at Toyota. Starting 1/20, I will be partially based in Seattle although I live in Dallas. 


Personal: Dad to three ex-caddies and one very patient and understanding spouse. Besides bridge, I enjoy mountain biking and I'm relearning the guitar (might swap lessons if you are game).  


Bridge: Reigning king of the machines. Have won a few minor league NABC's in the last two years. Inventor of Martian Standard with Andrew Gumperz (IM me for a summary).

BBO Team matches - recommended set up options for undo, barometer and kibitz
Confirm Bids and Confirm cards is a major PITA. You just end up clicking twice rather than once.
