I view myself as a coach and player within the data and analytics space, just like a sportsman because it feels like I'm playing a game that I love. I’m fast paced, intensely analytical, and hyper-focused on making an impact that matters.

As a coach and player in the data and analytics space, I can help you score in the buckets below:

💥 Unlock revenue opportunities
💥 Elevate user experiences
💥 Guide product strategy
💥 Optimize marketing investments
💥 Solve a variety of other business problems

With 10+ years of experience, I have the ability to contribute as a strategic leader, people manager, and all the way down to the code level as an advanced hands-on contributor.

Practically, I enable this by harnessing my deep technical expertise and orchestrating organizational capabilities towards the execution of my well thought out roadmaps and requirements.

The things that make me an accelerator in getting value from data include a product management approach, business domain knowledge, and commercial awareness.

If you want to zoom into what I can drive from a capability perspective, check out these five dimensions:

💥 Digital leadership and operational excellence
💥 Data science and machine learning
💥 Data visualization and dashboard development
💥 Data engineering and analytics engineering
💥 Data platform and self-serve architecture

I have been riding the waves of technological advancement but I operate with patience, empathy, and a pragmatic mindset that can quickly define long-term outcomes and chart out incremental improvements towards those outcomes at a pace that makes sense. I have developed this awareness through extensive experience in startups, medium sized companies, and global organizations with teams distributed around the world.

Technical skills include… Python, SQL, Tableau, Snowflake, MySQL, SQL Server, Postgres, DBT, Airflow, Google Cloud Platform, AWS S3, Alteryx, KNIME, Informatica, Datorama, Domo, Looker, Hadoop, Qlik, Salesforce

Hobbies and interests... yoga 🤸 music 🕺 martial arts 🤺 coffee shops ☕️ eating boxes of pizza 🍕
