Who is Oz?

I am an Excel developer, blogger, trainer, co-host of ExcelTV, raconteur and Excel MVP. I’m known for a fierce commitment to empowering people who don’t have an IT team or the skillset to manage their own data.

I am also the lead author of Guerrilla Data Analysis 2nd Ed., co-written with Mr. Excel, Bill Jelen. I relocated to Portland, OR in 2014 after 19 years in Chicago, and I’m known for my passion for ghost pepper Sriracha.

Just wanted to follow-up and let you know that your solution worked perfectly. I designed the budget template, after taking the course,  with PowerQuery in mind.  This will save us hours each month when we have to update.
