What is your credo/ your "WHY" regarding data?
My passion is data analytics… but really more about data storytelling, how to take data and interpret it, and then present it in a way that it’s so obvious…my motto is if you can’t understand that visual in 30 seconds, then it’s pointless. So that’s something I love doing, the data storytelling.
