Peter’s interest in data analysis began with reading Freakonomics whilst at 6th Form College. Using models to analyse data in order to explain unusual phenomena inspired him to go on to study Economics at University.
Since graduating he has worked in a number of analytical roles as a contractor at two national banks in the UK, and between contracts spent the winter months teaching Skiing and Snowboarding at an Austrian ski-school.
Most recently he has been working in social media analytics, where he started using Tableau. After getting to grips with the software and being inspired by some enthusiastic members of the community, he decided he wanted to learn much more and work with Tableau every day – so was extremely excited to join The Data School!
