Welcome to my blog

This blog starting out being about the books I wrote for ExpressionEngine. Now, the posts are more likely to be focused on my career in the world of Business Intelligence. My plan is not to get too technical, as there are hundreds of people with far more technical knowledge than me. Rather, I plan to talk more 'big picture' about Business Intelligence (especially self-service BI), work-life balance and other digestible topics. Enjoy!
