Who I am

I help fast-growing organizations in Asia-Pacific use data for decisions and deploy those decisions at scale, whether strategic, operational, or in-product.

My approach is to identify the business problems that matter and address those issues using the effectiveness of data. I don't consider myself just a data person, but a problem solver with data and technology as a core capability.

See my professional profile on LinkedIn.

What I offer

I solve your immediate business problems quickly and ensure that the product continues to be useful well after final delivery. I take into account the maturity of your data team and infrastructure to ensure that we work on what matters.

Pipeline Engineering

You first have to get useful data into a central location, so that you can create consistent and repeatable analyses and models. Wherever your data is stored, I create pipelines that extract, load, and transform the data in a data warehouse for everyone in your company.

Decision Science

I build fit-for-purpose decision support systems, whether it's a bespoke analysis for a key strategic decision or a business intelligence solution to support data-driven decisions across the company. I partner with stakeholders to ensure that analyses are not done in a vacuum.

Algorithms

At some point, every business will want to automate critical decisions with algorithms. I build fault-tolerant, precise, and innovative algorithmic systems that blend domain expertise with the power of data science. These systems are ready to plug into production engineering systems.
