What is the single most disruptive technology that will be born of big data and analytics? I'd love to know your thoughts on this topic! #bigdata  
While it’s admirable and impressive how big data is revolutionizing fields like health care and manufacturing, few people are aware of the serious risks big data poses to the future livelihoods of today’s knowledge workers.

Very interesting stats! The demand for Data Visualizers and Data Analysts is 6x greater than the demand for Data Scientists! But that just makes sense, doesn't it? #IBMInsight #dataviz #datalove #dataanalytics #jobs #bigdata #datascience #conferences #engineers #Hadoop #Spark #Python #developers

Story
Tagline
Bringing data literacy to the masses at Data-Mania ♤ Data science educator ✒ Author ✯ Paid speaker. Creative ღ Authentic ☸ Ambitious
Introduction
I started in the chemical sciences, as a Keck researcher working on exchange reactions for DNA/RNA molecules, and from there I went into the engineering field. After earning my Professional Engineering license, I went out on my own as a data science consultant. I've assisted global leaders in IT, major governmental and non-governmental entities, prestigious media corporations, and inspiring not-for-profit technology groups. Now I speak, train, and consult on the topics of data science, analytics, and big data.

My business base is in Houston, Texas, but I live in southeast Asia. For fun, I enjoy international travel.
