I am a data nerd seeking an opportunity to find a new industry to welcome my skillsets. I have spent over a decade perfecting a broad set of data and analytic skills and methodologies that have been used to modernize the way a company utilizes data in order to drive positive change for the future of an organization.

I seek to make the live’s of those around me as efficient and effective as possible. I want to equip the organization, whether it be the C-level executives or the front desk attendant, with the best, most sophisticated data and analytical tools to aid positive decision making. I have been a drill sergeant in the US Army, but I’ve also coached 4-year old soccer. The point isn’t that soldiers are like 4-year olds, but rather that I can teach and reach a broad group because I only aim to help an individual or team prepare to be successful. I do whatever is needed to aid in the success of the team and/or organization I’m a part of. I hope to be given an opportunity to be of service to you.
