Bio

Eight years of customer, product and channel reporting as Financial Reporting and Analyst, including customer consulting on report automation ,and then shifting to a focus on BI systems within IT to leverage SQL Server technologies. Worked as an information architect on a cross-functional team to deliver Business Intelligence to internal Microsoft, focusing on Business Solutions customers, partners, products and services metrics. It would be characterized as an agile platform.

A couple of highlights during my time in engineering:
I collaborated on the external publish of the Business Intelligence Reference Architecture documentation, along with other architects within Microsoft. I also joined the Design Rangers - a group of technology specialists within Microsoft IT working to improve the documentation of business processes, information models, database and system documentation.

I worked as Enterprise Architect at Intelligent InSites, a software company that leverages real-time location software within healthcare environments to improve efficiency for staff, equipment and patients. It's an exciting platform with expanding use case scenarios and tremendous demand, with an added challenge for real time intelligence.

I'm currently Director of Analytics and Data Scientist with R.D. Offutt Company within the IT organization, an agriculture and equipment company with numerous business facets and a spectacular understanding of the importance of data to making decisions.
