For much of my professional life I have found myself in roles that bridge the divide between business users and solution builders. My main Interests are in the areas of Data Analysis and Reporting and Businss System Design, and I have been fortunate enough to work in both small and large IT shops in manufacturing, insurance, professional service and government organizations. While much of my experience spans the conventional disciplines of business analysis and information systems, it also carries an increasing emphasis on data science, using quantitative analytics in order to gain business insight from operational data.


  • Data Analysis and Reporting Solutions
  • Business System Analysis, Planning and Design
  • Knowledge Portals

My education and qualifications include Master’s degree in Management of Technology and Innovation from the University of Waterloo as well as professional credentials as a Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP) and a Project Management Professional (PMP). I also holds an M.Sc. in Chemistry from the University of Western Ontario.

This site is mostly about my experiences in doing business system projects. It reflects my own personal biases, which include a deep interest in practical, affordable ways to gain business insight from operational data. I also have an ongoing interest in technology, tools and occasional bits of general interest. I hope to inform, to offer personal insights and maybe even entertain a bit. Comments are always welcome.
