How I Can Help You

Bottom Line: I will help your business to succeed.
That may sound like bluster, but it is the truth and it is what motivates my efforts. I like to win, and I have learned that I do so best when my clients win.
Commercial Analytics (or Business Intelligence) is a field that is full of practitioners. The majority of these are capable of making pretty pictures and dashboards. They typically are good at describing what is. They are also typically good at making their clients comfortable investing in their services.
I focus on increasing my Clients' understanding of their businesses and their available opportunities.
I do this by providing unique insights into their businesses and the markets within which they operate. Straight Line Analytics builds customer loyalty by enhancing the success of it's Clients.
I am takng what I learned over a long career helping large drug-selling entities optimize their performance and am applying that to the State-Legal Cannabis marketplace.
If you are hungry for success, please contact me. I would love to help you get there. I would love to both amplify and share in your success.

420 and Trump – The Devil’s Work?

(Author’s Note:  This is not meant to be a political posting, and I truly hope that readers do not take it as such.  I make it a point not to engage in National Politics in this greatest-of-all-Countries.  I feel blessed to be here, and enjoy the relatively low taxation regime under which we live.  This article is about numbers and their strange inter-relationships – a subject that has engaged and amused me since childhood). Today marks the 42nd day of the Presidency being defined by Donald Trump, it is also […]

Porcine Ramblings: Cannabis Enforcement in WA

“You’re big and bad and scary — But people see through you” (Bruce Cockburn) As we approach the 25th Anniversary Celebration of Hempfest (North America’s Biggest and the World’s Best Protestival), I wanted to reflect briefly on some of the carryovers from the age when “The Man” routinely ruined the lives of it’s children by criminalizing their recreational and medical choices relating to Cannabis. First and foremost – we’ve come a long way, but the Herb is not yet legal.  Smoke a joint this weekend in front of Washington State […]
