Dennis in a few words

I'm a PMI-Certified and Agile-Trained PM with over 10 years of experience working with remote cross-functional teams.

I'm specialized in Sales, IT, and creative projects, and if the project will contribute to a better world that's a nice bonus.

I'm a well-organized, data nerdy, fast learner with a passion for bringing diverse teams together, helping them to align and achieve common goals.

Need some video editing? I can handle that too.

I'm also handy for building and maintaining social media pages, particularly related to programs or projects.
