My work experience is fairly diverse, but tied to Business Intelligence and to Analytics one way or another.
I come from a business background, studied International Business then got an MBA. I do not code much, just enough to be dangerous, but have a firm grasp of the concepts underlying a database, performance issues in particular.
I currently work at Alteryx driving Marketing Analysis from the Bay Area, hence the picture above, in case you were wondering. I use with great enthusiasm the lethal combination of Alteryx for preparing data and Tableau to analyze and publish. I hope to convey that enthusiasm through that blog.
I have been using Tableau since June 2013, which is longer than Alteryx, since only November 2014. This has taken most of my attention away from Excel with PowerPivot, which I have been using for over 6 years. I am starting to use MongoDB and Neo4j Graph Database. I have also studied R, Python and Qlikview, but have no practical experience with those tools.
