Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m an avid tennis player and play as much as time allows. I have an awesome wife and two happy kids, two and four years old, who take up most of my time outside of work!
What do you do at PK?
My career has been spent working with data and software. I’ve done everything from data analytics work, software configuration and implementation, program management, and now dashboard and data visualization management. I’m a data geek and love solving business problems with data and actionable insights.
What’s it like working at PK.
PK is filled with passionate, smart, and dedicated people. It makes the day-to-day extremely rewarding, and you know you are going into battle with the best.
What do you love about your work?
I love solving business problems for non-technical clients using data, engineering, and human-centered design. Being able to showcase how powerful the things we build are and to see how impactful they are is very rewarding. It makes all the stress and hard work pay off in the end.
What is something you are most proud of in your work at PK?
When I first started at PK, I joined a large project at Microsoft working for the Azure Technical Marketing team. It was a big undertaking with lots of complicated steps, but it turned out very well, and we were nominated by the client as a supplier of the year at Microsoft.
What is something you’ve learned in your time at PK?
People management! I have had the opportunity in the past to manage 1 or 2 people, interns, and junior analysts, but the role at PK has really helped open a broader view of people management. I’ve learned a lot about how to navigate new scenarios and approaches. I love my team and I enjoy working with them on a daily basis and watching them produce some really wicked cool stuff.
