Gerard is a data engineer, data evangelist, and data strategist with customer advisory experience working for Tableau, Vertica, and Informatica and management consulting experience working for Accenture and PricewaterhouseCoopers. He's a dog lover (has Miniature Schnauzers). He auditioned for the Apprentice Season 2 (Philadelphia); tandem sky-dived (farm fields outside of Chicago); and zip-lined (Maui mountainside) and lives to tell about these experiences. YOLO! In his spare time, he is a foodie adventurist and aspiring MasterChef (someday). He also side hustles as an adjunct professor and data science bootcamp instructor. Data is his passion and helping people see and understand their data is his purpose.
