I love technology because there is a never ending cycle of improvement in all facets of the human-computer experience. My personal interests are vested in software, specifically in the area of interactive data visualization and location intelligence.
I am a minimalist at heart and believe that the more simplistic and elegant something can be functionally and aesthetically, the better. Solving problems with technology is my passion. I am fortunate to be in a position where I get to choose the problems that I want to solve and build a profitable business around it.
My work has taken me all over the world and afforded me with the opportunity to see amazing places, meet interesting people, and share some exciting experiences. Now, I am fortunate to spend my work hours with a hand picked team of experts building enterprise analytics and location intelligence tools.
When I am not behind a computer or hitting the road on meeting customers and partners, my downtime is spent in my home town of San Diego, where I enjoy the benefits of living in southern California.
Mico Yuk and I have been collegues and have co-presented keynotes, delivered workshops, and 1000+ attendee webinars focused on analytics. Analytics on Fire was born from the desier to share the conversations that occur behind closed doors to the public.
On Analytics on Fire (AOF) we interview some of the most interesting and passionate thought leaders in our industry who are well into their analytics journey. Each week we focus on a topic where senior members of both business and IT organizations share how they drive the analytics competency centers, teams, and projects for the largest corporations on the planet.
Their willingness to share their secrets to success has made Analytics on Fire a runaway hit!
