Hi, my name is Tom

Business Intelligence Analyst


I am a self-motivated and results-oriented professional with experience in data analysis, data reporting, and business intelligence systems. I am a focused problem solver through planning and strong follow up on all action items. I also enjoy learning new technology and processes as well as sharing and exploring ideas of ways to better the business. My skills include:

Understanding and developing complex in-house systems and processes.
Dashboard creation for internal and external stakeholders
Training colleagues on reporting tools and suites.
Effectively communicate between different business departments on different projects.


I believe that all data should be shown and presented in a manner in which a user can instantly look at and make sense of the information in front of them, leading to more business-critical decisions to be made more efficiently.
