Have data, will travel

Thoughts and ramblings from an analytics junkie

About this site

This page contains various comments on my experiences across the world of analytics, finance, work and life. Having said that, all opinions are my own and not those of the imaginary man in the sky...


8+ years of data analytics experience running the gammut of roles across sales, pre-sales, solutions architect, strategist, customer, etc. Posts here will pertain to thoughts on data analytics focused solutions or opportunities across a wide variety of markets and covering various tools


A strong focus on all things finance (specifically equity capital markets) these last 4 years I've worked and learnt from some very smart people. Posts here focus on my knowledge and thoughts and are not intended to be investment advice

Work and life (aka working life)

Posts in this section will focus on  experiences I have had across my work/life and the hope here is that these will prove to be useful for those in similar positions... or at least provide fun anecdotes

About Me

Mark has 11 years of experience working in both the finance and technology industries. His professional career started off in insurance as well as working as an auditor for a Big 4 firm (PwC). It was through his next role as an analyst at Commonwealth Bank that he first formed his passion for analytics and the power of technology and data to transform the way we make decisions. From there he worked as a management consultant focusing on data analytics solutions. His passion for problem solving could not be tamed and the call to become more hands on again beckoned with the opportunity to join the data research firm QMG and lead their technology transformation. He was instrumental in transforming the way the firm created its unique brand of equity research and it is this continued passion and skill-set that he brought to his work at Canaccord Genuity in London. Since then Mark has moved back to Australia to continue his pursuits of bringing data analytics and other disruptive technologies to the marketplace.
