I'm an entrepreneur, writer, and Xoogler currently working on a early data analytics venture. Check out my book Data Just Right: Introduction to Large Scale Data & Analytics, part of the Addison-Wesley Data and Analytics Series.
Previous to this, I worked at Google as a Developer Relations Engineer, focusing on the Google Cloud Platform and the Google Apps APIs. Outside of work, I'm a technologist, traveler, writer, optimist and information addict. I've spent a big chunk of my career working on Internet media projects for non-profit organizations. I've also written for tech blog ProgrammableWeb.com, spent time in rural Uganda researching mobile phone use, and somehow found the time to complete a Masters degree in Information Management and Systems from UC Berkeley's School of Information.
