Ryan got his degree in Pure Mathematics then embarked on a career in business. As an analyst, he spent his early days turning Excel files into PDFs and other worthwhile endeavors. In his search for “a better way” he came across the PowerPivotPro blog and became an avid follower. Learning about PowerPivot, Power BI, and Power Query from the PowerPivotPro blog, he also became fascinated with SQL servers, PowerShell, and process automation. He has since become a full stack developer for Microsoft Business Intelligence tools with a soft spot for removing the drudgery from everyday business data tasks.
His interests include optimizing business through intelligent data use, empowering analysts in the trenches, and hurling himself out of airplanes.
