This page lists the most up-to-date information regarding what I am doing right now.

A little bit about me.

Motorhead, flying, golfing, baseball, hiking, skiing, bread making, running, you name it. My passions carry me in many different and odd directions, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.


I currently live in Austin, TX.


I currently work for Analytics8 as a Managing Consultant. My role focuses on modernizing clients’ data architectures, data modeling practices, and developer workflows while managing a team of consultants working on similar projects. I am a certified professional in a number of technologies, including dbt, Google Cloud, and Databricks. I have even made open-source contributions to the dbt-core project!

I also help coordinate the organization of the Chicago dbt meetup each quarter!


I currently volunteer at Marbridge, a residential community for adults with a wide range of cognitive disabilities, putting on Bingo every Thursday night for residents. I’m currently kicking around coaching a Special Olympics team, time permitting!

Current Interests

Some of my current interests are:

  • Modern Data Stack (especially dbt)
  • Marathoning (I’ll be running Grandma’s in Duluth, fundraising and running Chicago this fall)
  • Formula 1
  • Aviation
  • Any book on our Human Nature (psychology/sociology), especially those with data-driven research findings.


I have quite a passion for lifelong learning. So while much of education is in the past, I am definitely continuing to learn new topics right /now. It’s this passion that motivated me to learn web development by making this website. More formally, I earned my Bachelors degree from the University of Minnesota in Industrial and Systems Engineering (yes that’s me on the front page!). If you don’t know what the IE curriculum entails, it is the science of Decision making, usually based on data, done so via:

  • Statistics
  • Optimization
  • Simulation

Thanks to my time in college, I have strong passions for data-driven solutions and using technology to eliminate repetitive tasks and free up time for more creative tasks.
