I hope you find value here.
The blog is my attempt to scale the countless 1-on-1 conversations I have with people about analytics and marketing.
My past and present:
I have setup or managed analytics for over 100 websites and apps: SaaS, membership, e-commerce, info-products.
Currently Head of Customer Success at Segment. I help users decide which analytics tools to use and make sure they get everything up and running smoothly.
I never settle for mediocre.
When I was a Junior in college I went to Beijing, China for a typical semester abroad. After the 4 month program was over I still couldn’t hold a conversation in Mandarin. Unsatisfied, I forced myself to stay in China. The next semester I enrolled only in complete Chinese immersion classes. My 4 month trip turned into a year, but I achieved my goal.
I also got my first taste of online business that summer when I worked at Beijing Home Delivery (a specialty grocery delivery startup). My Chinese definitely came in handy for sourcing new products!
Staying that long in China resulted in a pretty intense Senior year back in the states. I had to finish most of my math major in just a year, but it was worth it.
