I like helping people manage their data so they can think more creatively.

Armed with a liberal arts degree and a master’s from a leading business school, I set out into the world to become an amazing analyst.

Over the past few years I have worked on projects ranging from Canadian retailing to neurosurgeon compensation.

While I had big ideas about making an impact to the business, I felt drowned and overwhelmed in the data. There was no way to see the forest, because I was stuck in the trees of confusing spreadsheets.

Since starting my blog, I’ve written hundreds of posts. I’ve launched courses, written ebooks and developed a great network of Excel and analytics enthusiasts.

Through this experience, I’ve noticed patterns of what makes a good analyst. Specifically, I’ve seen the best and worst in Microsoft Excel and data analysis.

Data literacy is necessary for innovation.
