Data Analyst, Business Systems Analyst, Information & System Architect
Trained in science, engineering, and sustainability, I have almost 20 years as a professional in technology, communications, energy / environment, and health. With the mind of an engineer, heart of a scientist, and drive of an entrepreneur, I have an appetite for innovation and change.
I’ve passionately led teams and numerous projects in:
* Business analysis, business development, and systems automation
* Data analysis and business intelligence
* Research, market analysis, and strategic consulting
* Product development, deployment, and support
* Branding, marketing, communications, and publishing
* Personal, career, and business coaching
Colleagues and peers recognize me for the following ‘superpowers’:
* INNOVATION ENTHUSIAST, FUTURIST & CHANGE AGENT: I drive innovation and progress — both incremental and disruptive. With keen observation, trendspotting, and foresight, I enjoy exploring options and multi-faceted impacts through thought experiments, projections, forecasting / backcasting, and scenario analysis.
* IDEA TRANSLATOR & ENGAGING TEACHER: I communicate big ideas in interesting, effective ways. I have a rare and uncanny ability to understand and translate complex ideas and concepts into simple, clever, quirky explanations. And my sharp writing and presentation skills -- often sprinkled with humour and wit -- create smiles, memorable learning, and comments like, “I’ve never heard it explained that way before!” and “Oh, THAT’s how that works!”
* PROGRESSIVE THINKER & INSIGHTFUL ANALYST: I build understanding, clarity, and insight with powerful questions, thoughtful exploration, and perceptive analysis.
* STRATEGIC ADVISOR & SYSTEMS ARCHITECT: I light the way forward with maps, systems, decision support tools, and strategic planning that are thorough and practical.
* SPECIAL INVESTIGATOR: I tackle complex problems with curiosity, creativity, and resourcefulness, blending methodical approaches with fresh, interesting perspectives. Teams welcome me to shrink problems, grow solutions, and throw victory dance parties.
