How does this work?

I am a sustainable business minded data analyst who thinks like an engineer and enjoys finishing what he starts. I’m interested in creating clean, clear, data based visualization solutions that are as enjoyable to use as they are to build. I have worked in Mexico and Kenya and can communicate across boundaries.
