While running AWR, I discovered that my real passion lies in using data to improve the success of a business. After we sold the company, I had the opportunity to hand off my CEO role so that I could spend time learning the right way to collect and work with our data. During that process, I re-discovered my passion for writing code and found that I enjoy developing software and analyzing data more than running a company and am re-dedicating my career down that path.
