Senior Executive/Team Builder in Healthcare Payer, Provider and Pharmacy Analytics, Machine Learning & Data Science


For over 15 years my passion has been to unlock the hidden drivers of profit, efficiency and value by applying the rigor and discipline of the scientific method to business data sets - I was a data scientist before it was trendy. I utilize the techniques of Data Science (DS), Machine Learning (ML), Predictive Analytics (PA), Data Warehousing (DWH), Business Intelligence (BI) and Database (DB) Architecture, implemented with state-of-the-art tools such as R and Python in Amazon Web Services (AWS), but I never underestimate the simple power of SQL, or the humble effectiveness of the spreadsheet.

I have applied my passion to the healthcare space with demonstrated experience building, managing and monetizing teams, opportunities and new products, and in the process have developed an in depth knowledge of clinical, claims and pharmacy data from Payer, Provider & Industry perspectives.
