Hopefully you’ve stumbled upon this blog because you have an interest in data analytics. This blog is for everyone, whether you are a seasoned Business Intelligence or Data Science professional or a tech enthusiast interested in understanding data analytics a little bit more.
So.. What’s This Blog All About?
There will be a variety of topics covered in the upcoming posts. Basically, whenever I have questions or run into any obstacles within business intelligence, data science or data management, I’ll research the answer and post about it. Whenever I read about a tech or market trend I’ll post about it. Whenever I prove training to anyone or asked a question, I’ll post about the topics. I’ll also try to provide some advise career guidance and advise to anyone new to or thinking about a career in analytics….Like I said a wide variety of topics. My intent is to create a one-stop blog to cover many different topics in data analytics.
Why have this blog anyways?
Well my motivation is simple… Because I would have liked a blog like this when I was getting started in this field. Don’t get me wrong there are a ton of GREAT, well established and reputable blogs on these topics out there, and I will even have a post about some of my favorites. However, I often find myself bouncing around on different blogs depending on my question or specific area of interest.

Most of my posts will be derived from my past experiences, both from a professional/industry perspective and academic. Other posts will be motivated from information I have researched or stumbled upon from various online and educational resources (in those situations I’ll try to include as much information about where the knowledge can be found as possible).
