Chief Data Scientist, VP Product Management

Drew first tackled analytics in 1991 with his thesis on interpretations of an ancient Chinese text used as a decision engine.  More than twenty years ago, this passion for the arcane and complicated led him to becoming a digital artist turned self-taught programmer to solve magic squares and generate Postscript visualizations. For the last ten years, Drew has built machine learning bridges inside Fortune 10 business analytics through real time solutions and mentoring hundreds of professionals in becoming data scientists. Adding ventures of his own analytics practice taught him the only thing funner than reading history was writing your own story. As his third startup, UBIX piqued the thrill of trying to change analytics history. In our brief time together, Drew already fulfilled many life-long dreams with UBIX, including leaving an executive role to be its first employee. The greatest dream fulfilled for Drew so far has been building bioinformatics for cancer genomics research.  But then again, Drew’s just getting started
