My Favorite Pairing Partners

I’ve been reflecting on the many things for which I’m thankful, and, of course, that includes many people. I wouldn’t be where I am today — nor have enjoyed life nearly as much — without the numerous people who have paired with me, whether it’s been via software development, trainings, coaching, role-sharing, conference talks, etc. So here’s a gratitude in photo-gallery form — thank you to all of you (and many more not shown) who have taught, listened to, borne with, encouraged, supported, shared with, challenged, laughed with and otherwise made amazing memories with me. You have made me a better person, so thank you.
