About Me

Hello, I am Steve Rynearson, Excel / VBA Developer.

I've spent over 10 years using Excel, VBA, SQL, R, and more to manipulate, analyze, and present data.

In addition to data analytics, I've worked on many budgeting, forecasting, financial, and accounting projects.

Don't let my inner data-nerd fool you. I'm business and results oriented. I design tools that are user-friendly and can easily communicate with non-technical users.
