    About

    I am an eager professional with five (5) years of solid experience growing business value as an analyst across a variety of industries including media, software development, finance, entertainment, and market research both in the United States and Japan. My roles included the responsibility for providing recommendations to leadership, which have led to decisions that increased institutional value of $4 million or greater. My genuine interest in people and high social IQ has been the key to my success. I have proven success in partnering with cross-functional teams, support staff, executives, vendors and customers to design data architecture that supports actionable decisions. My current role at The Seattle Times, I am responsible for developing and analyzing behavioral patterns in web data using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server Analysis Services, and Power Pivot. Currently, I am part of facilitating the roll out of a Web Analytics Program with change management best practices to keep the people, processes, and systems aligned with our current business strategies. Additionally, I am implementing a decision making framework around audience engagement to be a part of The Seattle Time’s ongoing business practices with dashboards in Excel, and Tableau.
