Summary

Driven by my natural curiosity, I’m data analyst in my day job, an amature musician after work (piano, guitar, vocals), a blogger, and a contributor to expert panels. Having a passion for working with both people and technology, I am able to tackle a wide range of technical and business challenges.

Industries I've worked with include travel, fashion, consulting, cleantech, and academia.
My domain knowledge is in the following areas: Business & IT (BI, Web Analytics, E-commerce, Marketing and Business Strategy), Environment and Transportation (GHG management, airports, urban transportation). In addition, I'm committed to being a life-long learner always checking what's new on Coursera, and other MOOC platforms.

Tools/Languages I'm currently using: MySQL, Google BigQuery, Amazon Redshift, SAS, Tableau Software, Python, WordPress, English, French, Hebrew, and Music Notes. I invite you to visit my portfolio website where I host my BI blog: http://www.yaroncohen.co
