Bio

I am an Aerospace Engineer and Pilot by trade, not a Computer Scientist or hardcore computer enthusiast. However, I have 7 years' experience working for several large aerospace corporations and have used Excel heavily through every stage of my career, including my current line of work as an Airline pilot. I've used (almost) every trick in (and out of) the book to bend this glorified ledger to my twisted will, using it for everything from complex airplane design trade studies to rudimentary...

I am an Aerospace Engineer and Pilot by trade, not a Computer Scientist or hardcore computer enthusiast. However, I have 7 years' experience working for several large aerospace corporations and have used Excel heavily through every stage of my career, including my current line of work as an Airline pilot. I've used (almost) every trick in (and out of) the book to bend this glorified ledger to my twisted will, using it for everything from complex airplane design trade studies to rudimentary aero-structural simulations to project management tasks (risk analysis, schedule, budget, status) to logging flight experience for regulatory purposes.

This application-heavy experience makes me uniquely qualified to explain how to get the most out of Excel from a practical point of view. Bessel functions? Who needs 'em?! I'll show you what you really need to know.

I don't know everything about Microsoft Excel, but I am pretty darn good at it.
Here is a sample of what I can teach you:

Best Practices for working with and presenting datasets of different sizes

Large table indexing and summarization, using implementations of functions such as V/HLOOKUP, SUMIF(S), COUNTIF(S)

Text extraction and manipulation methods, using nested functions such as FIND, LEFT, MID, RIGHT, INDEX, MATCH, CONCATENTATE

Import/Export of large datasets in various formats (.csv, .txt, etc.), and how to transform your imported "gobbledegook" into a productive spreadsheet

Basic VBA Macros- to automate large, repetitive tasks

Pivot Tables

High level of practical experience with Microsoft Office products, especially Excel, Word and Powerpoint.

What do YOU want to learn to do in Excel? It is such a powerful program- with so many capabilities- that THE best way to learn is by doing... with real examples- right from the start. So let's go on this journey together. Give me "the impossible spreadsheet", and we'll figure it out together! Sign up for a session and let me transform you into an Excel Machine.

I am an experienced former Aerospace Engineer (7 years experience, including 6 years at major PNW aerospace corporation) and current airline captain. I used MS Excel extensively in my engineering career as well as my job as a pilot. I am very experienced in crunching through huge volumes of data- and then later searching/filtering/sorting that data to bend it to my twisted will. I can teach you to tame monstrous, ugly data into an obedient puppy.
