Back in 2013, I traded cubicle walls and stale coffee for the life of a multi-6 figure, remote-working data entrepreneur. Traveling world-wide, to date I’ve trained over 1 MILLION workers on data science, AI, and data strategy. I loveeee supporting my community of 650,000+ followers across LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, and on the Data-Mania Newsletter!! 

My passion is helping today’s data professionals transform into data leaders of tomorrow… So that they can deliver more impact, with greater purpose… and enjoy new heights of opportunity.

Oh that – and I’m 💯 obsessed with nitro cold brew coffee, Thai massage, and expat living.
