Story

Consulting Business Analyst & Speaker with ThoughtWorks
Introduction
Howdy. This is another virtual representation of me. I am a business analyst and a speaker. I like being a manager and a consultant. I work for ThoughtWorks. 

I've been called many things, but I prefer Jeffrey. Unless of course you knew me in college and I answer to CRASH. 

I like to read. Even more, I like to talk. I love to train and mentor people. I like poker, but I shouldn't play past the homegame level. I am very good at being a dad. I have a good relationship with my wife, but I want it to be better, I want it to be great.

I am excited to be attending the IIBA conference (do I have to call it BBC Con?) this year and co-hosting the "(un)conference within a conference" sponsored by the Agile Alliance. It's an Open Jam area to discuss how Agile has an impact on analysis and other practices, so please stop by to discuss your questions!

This link is my write-up (1 of many) of this event. I'll see you there!
