Tech Entrepreneur, Author, Business Intelligence Expert

About Me

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 enterprise software, specifically in the area of analytics, 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. Turning data into knowledge is my passion. I consider myself fortunate to work on my passion every day while designing products, leading tellented professionals, and growing my business ventures.

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.

When I am not behind a computer or 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.

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.
