What I Do
With 18 years of extensive data warehouse and data analysis experience, I help organizations deliver smart analytics that lead to smart actions.
I've seen the powerful impact data can have in helping individuals and organizations become far more efficient and exceed their goals.
Data Isn't Enough
But data itself isn't enough. Data becomes powerful when it's organized and made accessible to communicate trends, problems, opportunities, and more.
Unfortunately, business intelligence solutions often aren't designed with a focus on how to improve the interaction between man and machine.
I enjoy helping companies reduce that friction between their people and data to deliver smart analytics that lead to smart actions.
A Little Bit about Me
I grew up in the-place-of-too-much-snow (also known as Canada). In my early teens, I decided I wanted to live all over the world and not simply because I needed to warm up.
In college, I considered studying International Development because I wanted to help individuals make a better life for themselves. Unfortunately, too often I saw organizations from wealthy countries show up and deliver solutions with little to no input from those they were supposedly serving. Such efforts were rarely effective long term. Because of this issue, I chose a different path and instead worked in the corporate world. I'd save enough money to afford to volunteer for short periods with those organizations I respected.
Thankfully, there's now a way to combine my BI skills with my desire to make a positive impact in the world. I do this by using data to help organizations make a difference in our world. It's also done through data philanthropy where companies and data scientists share their data, time, and expertise to help solve problems that can best be addressed with the power of data.
Some of My Skills
As a Business Intelligence Specialist, rather than listing my skills in text format, I decided to share them visually.
