I co-organized six SQL Saturdays: SQL Saturday Denver #673 and SQL Saturday Kansas City #s 159,  191, 300, 444,  and 548.

I edited the whitepaper on Planning a Power BI Enterprise Deployment.

I co-wrote a free e-book about Datazen in 2015 after it was acquired by Microsoft. I updated that book for SSRS 2016 mobile reports in January 2017.

I participate on the Power BI forums and vote for new features in the Ideas section.
