Andrew is one of the best individuals in data & analytics I've had the pleasure to work with. One of the main things I appreciated about Andrew is he actually took the time to really understand our needs to build something very custom quickly. Andrew was monumental to the success of the project and I would open an opportunity to work with him again in a heartbeat.
I attribute much of my success as a new Manager to Andrew. He clearly has a passion for teaching others, and he provided detailed insight into our operations, which helped me get up to speed quickly. His analytical and technical skills are impressive, and I relied on his analysis to steer the strategy of our group.
I was an early employee at Looker and helped establish their Professional Services Department. I’ve implemented Looker at numerous companies and oversaw Looker’s own implementation that served over 1000 internal stakeholders.
With over two decades in data analytics, data science, and data infrastructure, I meet stakeholders where they are and provide thorough training and ongoing education to maximize the value of every client’s data.
I’ve worked with and served a variety of technical and non-technical teams. At ebay and Google, I managed entire Business Intelligence and Analytics teams, and as a consultant I provide everything from a sounding board to fractional data leadership.
