Writing forces sharper understanding. Writing is a great way to put pressure on your thinking: itโ€™s hard to summarize something you donโ€™t sharply understand. By trying to explain an idea, youโ€™ll naturally try multiple framings, flesh out its edges, and see new connections.

Andyโ€™s thinking is the core driver behind this site. Itโ€™s a place for me to share ideas and things Iโ€™ve worked on, and in the process of doing so, build a better understanding of the underlying principles or technologies at play.

Iโ€™m currently the co-founder of a company called SELECT, which optimizes Snowflake performance and costs. If you are trying to reduce your Snowflake bill, improve performance, or curious to learn more about Snowflake in general, donโ€™t hesitate to email me - Iโ€™d be more than happy to chat!

Prior to starting Select, I led data teams at Shopify and worked as a data scientist at Capital One.
