Wash your hands!


Professional: Part of the Agile consulting practice at NTT Data after running the PMO at Toyota. Working as a Salesforce Product Owner for a virtual company  living 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: King of the machines, Fall 2019. 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).

Confession of a Self-Kibitzer
Marty, considering one of RFP's partners was reportedly doing the same thing as Michal I think he deserved a pass here.
