About Me

Reading Time: 2 minutes

My name is Craig,

I bring data and automation together. I love to learn and share what I learn with the technical community. I enjoy running and live for my family. He/Him


I am a Principal Advanced Analytics Consultant and Microsoft Data Platform MVP. I have worked with the Data Platform for more than a decade, supporting global BI Environments, automating processes with PowerShell and implementing BI Solutions. Starting off with Excel and Microsoft Access, through every SQL Server edition to Azure, Power BI, Databricks and more. More recently I’ve taken up speaking to share my knowledge and experience at conferences and user groups across europe.

I started this site as a way to contribute to the data community where I’ve found gems that ended hours of head scratching & frustration! This grew into co-running the Glasgow Data User Group and founding Scotland’s Data Community conference – DATA:Scotland.

I hope people find useful solutions, workarounds and amusement in these posts as I have on many other blogs. Otherwise its all a huge waste of time!! Pffft!
