What I do:

    I am a Microsoft Data Platform MVP. I was awarded an MVP in 2011 and have been renewed every year since. I specializes in all things data and the Microsoft Cloud. I'm proficient in Power BI, DAX, T-SQL, Python, R, Azure Synapse, Azure Databricks, Spark, SQL Serverless, Azure CosmosDB, Azure SQL DB (MI and Hyperscale), Azure Data Factory, and Azure Data Lake Storage. I enjoy helping organizations wrangle their data, prepare it, make it fast and accurate, and visualize it in a way that makes a deep impact on business users and decision makers.

    I lead a team of software developers, data engineers, data creatives, and data scientists. I am responsible for quoting, fueling the sales pipeline, and ultimately all aspects of several businesses. I'm also a board member of several non-profit organizations. I guide executives on how to make data-driven decisions to improve their overal strategies.

    I enjoy being involved in the wider technical community. I've spoken at PASS Summit (2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019), Redgate SQL in the City (2012, 2013, 2015, 2018, 2019), SQL Bits (2018, 2020), and TechEd Europe (2012). I wrote the data portion of Developing Azure Solutions in 2015. The second edition was released in 2018. I wrote the chapter on DAX for the Power BI MVP Book.

    I also enjoy making YouTube videos on Power BI, Azure, and anything else that comes to mind.
