Basically I am a data platform professional. I am deeply involved with database technologies and associated analytics as well as merging Business Intelligence Development processes into agile methodologies. I am also heavily involved with “Big Data” and “Advanced Analytics” as well as Machine Learning. (I was considered a “Data Scientist” before Data Science was “Cool”). I was the lead visionary for Big Data, Machine Learning and Advanced Analytics solutions for our Federal Customers at Microsoft but have recently made the jump to support large enterprise customers in the Desert Southwest. Prior to joining Microsoft I was a Microsoft Visual Studio ALM MVP with a focus towards “Data Dude” and “Agile Database Methodologies”. I spend much of my time today helping our customers understand and visualize how “Big Data Analytics” and Machine Learning technologies can enhance their mission.
