Chief Data Officer, Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors

As Chief Data Officer of several financial firms on Wall Street, managing the data implementation of  over 50 billion in (AUM), I have over 20 years of experience in Database Administration, Data Warehouse, ETL, Visual BI Reporting and Data analytics, I have had the opportunity to address many technical problems and solutions, and have been on the leading edge of cloud data engineering.

I manage all technical aspects of data analytics, reporting and governance; implementing Azure data services using logic apps and functions, data lake and data bricks, persisting a data warehouse in Azure Hyperscale SQL, and finally modeling all data sources within Power BI for reports, dashboards and analytics.  

Never have I been so excited, and yet so astonished by the speed and advances in data engineering within cloud services, leveraging the reusability of the solutions already developed; believe the single most successful project in any firm may will be migrating their data infrastructure to cloud services and data analytics.
