A quick description of my background
I’m a consultant and entrepreneur who focuses on using technology and data to solve business problems. My experience includes working with IT and Marketing groups to integrate technology with marketing initiatives. My main interest areas fall into merger of data and technology with a focus on machine learning, sentiment analysis / natural language processing, AI, technology, information technology and big data.
I have earned a Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) in Information systems with a specialization in knowledge management, decision support, sentiment analysis, social network analysis and natural language processing.
My dissertation title is “Analysis of Twitter Messages for Sentiment and Insight for use in Stock Market Decision Making.”
A bit more about me
I’ve done a lot of things in my career. I’ve worked in technical support, worked as a developer, project manager, team leader & manager, group director and founder of three companies (didn’t make much money from them, but I learned more from these businesses than I ever thought I would).
These days, I work as a consultant helping marketing and IT groups with data and technology strategy, selection, implementation and management. Additionally, I’m a bit of a data nerd and love to look for ways to use data to solve problems.
Also, when I can, I like to take photos. My main interest is nature, wildlife and landscape photography. You can see some of my work my photography page.
I also partner with a select few companies / consultants that I’ve worked with in the past and trust. If I can’t help you, I probably know someone who can.
