Statistician, Data Scientist & Teacher - 25 Years Experience, 300+ Projects

I Work in 5 Cities in 4 Countries - Canada, US, Mexico & India

Statistician, Data Scientist & Teacher

For 25 years I've worked as a Consulting Statistician travelling throughout Canada, Europe and the US.

In 2006 I moved to Pune India. I opened a niche Analytics Consulting company specializing in Hospital Accreditation Analytics.

My move to Southeast Asia inspires a lot of interest on both sides of the Arabian Sea. Americans are curious about many things. Toilet paper, hot food and health care are often in the same question. From the North in Derhadun to Kanyakumari in the South, Indians are mostly interested in my marital status. My work is seldom mentioned during these friendly fire Interrogations.

This year I am living between Houston Texas and Huajuapan De Leon Mexico. I'm very excited to be coding some cutting edge Analytics Software with a great group of Engineers in the US & Mexico.

Ottawa Ontario, Canada is home when I am not on a data discovery adventure.



I'm Passionate About

Non-Profits

Each year I make it a point to offer low-cost Analytics Consulting to struggling organizations. All too often great social programs lose funding simply because data are not collected, analyzed or reported properly to the funding agency.

Education

Make it practical and make it real. Teaching others to use Analytics is a large part of what I do. I teach in University Lecture Halls and Corporate Boardrooms. I teach Applied Analytics, Research Methods & Data Visualization.

Travel

I began traveling early in my consulting career. I am attracted to challenges in far away places. I love building Mobile Data Collection tools for rural and remote regions so Data Scientists anywhere can find solutions to difficult problems.

  • Value Add Analytics

    I started BaseMetrics in 2000. My company offers niche Analytics services in Canada, Mexico, India and the US. I typically work with organizations already strong in Analytics but who need short-term "Value-Add" solutions like Advanced Bayesian Predictive Modeling.
