I'm one of the two founders of CSG Pro. It's over 23 years now since our start and I'm enjoying professional life more than ever! So what is driving my enthusiasm? Two words -- Business Analytics. This is the primary focus of my current role at CSG Pro, and as the Business Analytics Practice Leader, I'm involved in all aspects of the work we do for our clients. I love being hands on working with my team to create solutions for our clients. It is so gratifying to see the results of our work and to receive such great feedback from our clients.

CSG Pro has been a Microsoft Gold Partner for many years. Our Business Analytics Practice embraces the full stack of the Microsoft BI platform. I'm personally a big fan of Power BI and as an early adopter it is gratifying to see the platform become mainstream. It has become a game changer for our many of clients.

I'm one of the founders of the Portland Power BI User Group and I organize monthly meetings with the local (and steadily growing PBI community).

When I'm not geeking-out on technology and data, I'm probably chasing steelhead on the Trask River or writing songs and playing music.
