(We're investing a lot of time and effort building a great community here so it's important that we know at least a little bit about our members. Please answer all questions, even if briefly!). #1: Why are you interested in "the business of data"?

Well besides paying the bills, it keeps me busy and out of trouble. It all started at a fateful lunch in 2009 when a friend hand's me a copy of T White's book and asked if I could built out a cluster and learn this thing called Hadoop. Its all been a complete roller coaster since then.

Where do you work (company, institution) or study (school) and what do you do?

I work for Think Big Analytics and I do whatever they tell me. ;-) I'm a Principal Consultants so I pretty much do all the heavy lifting to make our Data Science guys look good. ;-)

Please confirm your first name and last name (we need to create security badges for the meetups)

Introduction

Hi, I'm Mike and I'm a Big Data-holic. Just some guy who got caught up in this Big Data Craze. I pretty much get to solve problems using and abusing the Hadoop environment on an almost daily basis.
