My name is Chris Williams, a thirty-something Data Engineering Consultant living in York. I’ve been working with Data for almost a decade now, starting off as a Data Analyst and BI Developer in the Education sector, then moving to numerous roles creating data platforms, lakes, warehouses and reporting portals. I currently have been given the great opportunity to join the talented people at Advancing Analytics as a Senior Consultant of Data Engineering. I have always been fascinated by the speed of technological innovation in this work. There is always a new tool to explore or and new skill to learn.
