Story
Tagline
Lover of all things backed by good data
Introduction
 have a strong bias for action and strategic implementation. I love to building things and certainly don't mind breaking them as long as it leads to high impact learning or the data tells me that they need to be broken. Above all, the satisfaction of creating something  of value from nothing and the challenge of the process along the way are the highs that I live for. Virtually everything that I choose to pour significant time and energy into gives me that rush in some way.
