Tell us a little bit about your career path. How did you get into project management?
I’ve always had an interest in different aspects of app development—graphic art, user experience design, audio design, and programming, which I sought a degree in at the University of Florida. This seemed to have influenced my early career as a programmer because I would always have an interest in the bigger picture of what we were doing. This meant that even during my programmer days, I found myself coordinating and communicating with designers, producers, and business analysts to communicate blockers and offer more transparency on the behind-the-scenes. It took two different promotions from different companies before I figured that Project Management suited me best for my skill sets. During the process, I learned about agile scrum methodologies and have since learned from videos, blogs, and events on how to become a Scrum Master for my team.
Can you describe what a scrum master is and what your typical workday looks like?
How does the scrum process work at LiveLike?
Did you always want to be in project management?
Is there anything else you’d want to share with aspiring project managers and scrum masters?
For Scrum Masters: The best thing you can do is surround yourself with other Scrum Masters to listen to their stories and build a knowledge base, so when a similar situation happens, you have a reference point to work with.
Thank you, Victor!
