About

Things to Know

  • Rankings or listicles remain one of the dumber ways to organize the world.
  • I really groove on Excel because it can drive most analyses. It could be painful and not easy but you can get the job done with Excel. Plus, you most likely own it and know how to use it.
  • When lemmings are going off the cliff, I bring a hang glider.
  • When the herd runs in one direction, I try to get out of its way.
  • I can coax a story out of the nosiest or quietest datasets.
