Experience

Here’s my resume.

Business analytics & data science at International Planning & Research in New Haven, CT and Boston, MA 2009-2019
Principal Consultant 2017-2019 | Senior Consultant 2012-2017 | Consultant 2009-2012

  • I used my background in econometrics to build forecasting and market sizing models for clients in the IT industry. I excel in leveraging limited data with statistical tools to develop a more complete understanding of markets under varying assumptions.

  • I delivered results as actionable insights and interactive scenario simulators for executive-level clients.

Independent consultant for the New York Rangers Hockey Club, 2016-2017

  • I built web applications using SQL and R Shiny Server to analyze NHL post-game & player data streams, fully customized to the client’s definitions. This allowed front office staff to validate coaches’ “eyeball” assessment of scoring chances with an objective data-driven perspective.

  • In a follow-up project, I developed a player matching tool to support analysis of free agent contract offers. This tool searched for recent player “comps” across the NHL based on player age, performance metrics, & status, improving the management’s position in contract negotiations.

Senior Analyst, International Arbitration at EconOne in Washington, DC in 2012

  • I developed valuation models for natural resource companies for use in contract disputes and arbitration.
