About the Author

Hello there Jira guys and gals! My name is Rodney Nissen, better known as The Jira Guy. I write the weekly blogs full of tips, tricks, and how-tos to get the most out of your Atlassian tools. When I’m not continuing my endeavor to help the Atlassian Community, I work as a Senior Atlassian Admin at Activision-Blizzard-King, helping others produce games by giving them an Atlassian platform to organize and document their work.

In my off time, I enjoy kayaking, photography, gardening, and of course, games!
