Andres Palavicini Sr. Scrum Master
Andres Palavicini is one of Gorilla Logic’s talented Sr. Scrum Masters. He spends his free time with his family, hiking, mountain biking, or talking his 2 mutts for a run. This leaves little time for his PS4 single player games and jamming acoustic rock sessions on his 6 string. Andres tries to impersonate a sherpa attitude in his Scrum Master role. He is happiest when the people around him feel good about their work.
