Thanks for visiting my blog! I hope that you will enjoy your experience here, and also learn some cool tools and techniques that you can use toward your goals. Most of these techniques I learned or developed in my years of designing and deploying all kinds of solutions in my work. Aside from that, I find my work to be a lot of fun! Someone once said that I was like a dog with a bone when solving a problem. If you're like that an enjoy problem-solving, you're in the right place!

My goal is to empower people to take control of their data! To that end, I started a blog with some articles on how business and professional people can take advantage of tools and techniques used by data specialists. In over 20 years of development and support across many industries, I found that regular people are starved for an idea on how to take their data experience to the next level. In a new world with the massive amount of data being generated every second, there is a great opportunity to learn how to use it effectively.
