I'm a data engineer and Microsoft Data Platform MVP. I specialise in building and automating analytics platforms using Microsoft technologies from the SQL Server stack to the Azure cloud. I’m a fervent advocate of DataOps, with a technical focus on bringing automation to both analytics development and operations. An active member of the data community and keen knowledge-sharer, I'm a volunteer, organiser, speaker, blogger, open-source contributor and author – my book Azure Data Factory by Example was published by Apress in June 2021. I hold a PhD in Computer Science and participate enthusiastically in choral singing, craft ale and cocktails, most successfully in that order.
