My work on the Adobe Digital Index team has given me a unique data mining playground to be in. Adobe tracks $6 out of every $10 spent online and also has a large amount of media, travel, financial, and tech companies that use its Marketing Cloud products. I have over 50 analyses published in top-tier press outlets since 2011 ranging from trends within social media to predicting movie profitability with social buzz, and using data to preview the World Cup, Super Bowl, Olympics, NFL, and NBA. My reports can be found on, Adobe Marketing Blog, and listed below.
