Lucas started his career as a software engineer and transitioned to program management before leading the agile transition within his division of Boeing.  These experiences have given Lucas a wide breath of understanding that he leverages in his training, coaching, and technical engagements.  Lucas has a computer engineering degree from Penn State University and a Masters in Telecommunications Systems from George Mason University. 

In addition to being a Professional Scrum Trainer (PST) with Scrum.org he also holds the distinguished Level III Professional Scrum Master (PSMIII) Certification and holds the Certified Scrum Professional (CSP), Certified Scrum Master (CSM), and Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) certifications through Scrum Alliance which was also co-founded by Ken Schwaber.
