Q: What's your favorite TV show?

A: Game of Thrones

Q: Where is your favorite vacation spot?

A: I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Q: What do you love best about your job?

A: The people! TG has so many smart and talented people, it’s great to see what they are capable of!

Q: What has been your best experience at TG so far?

A: Visiting the Boise office.

Q: What technologies have you worked with or enjoyed working with?

A: I’ve spent a lot of time working with ERP and CRM systems as well as BI tools. I like that BI tools can help communicate results and trends to people who are normally not data-driven. For any advanced analytics, I still tend to lean towards SAS, but have been exploring R and Python and would like to continue to try them out.
