About Us

A note from the founder…


It was my passion for data that was the catalyst that spawned our firm. My interest in working with data and geographical mapping to solve social and business problems began as a Research Assistant while earning my Bachelor of Science in Economics. This was my first exposure to empirical research and the arduous process of being able to make peer-reviewed data driven claims. My passion for the process came to full fruition working as a Graduate Research Assistant while earning my Master of Science in Information Technology with a concentration in Business Analytics. There is nothing that compares to seeing the results of your efforts manifest in valuable inferences and implications. I have been lucky to have met well respected and incredibly intelligent colleagues while co-authoring research papers, assisting in research, serving as a consultant, and working in the industry. It is this network that has become the foundation of Linear Consulting. We are always looking to expand our network, and we welcome innovative approaches to our data driven solutions.

I don’t believe we ever stop learning, especially not in such a dynamic industry as data science or business analytics. It is our firm’s mission to continue to grow our network, strive to continue learning, and deliver unbiased data driven answers to our clients’ questions. Be wary of those who claim to know it all for they stopped advancing and learning the moment they first spoke those words.

We are located in the Detroit Metropolitan area, and serve the entire United States. I look forward to working with you, and helping you succeed through our consulting services. When you succeed, we succeed!
