  • Community building around the knowledge graph through discord and workshops

Following Compensation Guidelines I would rate myself as cozy

About Me:
I have been in the management consulting space for the past 10 years where my area of specialty has been data science and data infrastructure. The past 5 years I have been 100% focused on building out large scale knowledge graph applications for Fortune 100 companies. Currently I am a senior manager at my firm and lead our graph consulting business, managing multiple teams across a number of clients and industry use cases. Most of our work is in Neo4j. I have had a keen interest in the Web3 and crypto space for a number of years now and will possibly be looking to make the switch over. You can find my linkedin here. I have not done a conference presentation on graph applications since Covid started but I plan to get back to presenting industry use cases going forward.
If we haven’t met yet, please don’t hesitate to reach out! If you have any comments or feedback, looking forward to discussing them in the forum.
