Machine & Emotion is comprised of Kate Onk and Ryan Hammer

Kate started her career in business intelligence by learning SQL and the importance of database governance with analytics being crucial for operational excellence. She often was the face of a BI tool and met with stakeholders to develop an internal reporting strategy. This includes tools for data visualization such as Tableau, Power BI, Cognos, Argos, Excel and more. 

Her interest in data evolved as she played larger roles managing projects for validating data, creating external facing products and developing a go to market strategy. In the age of digital privacy, she was the GDPR Project Manager for a mobile video advertising platform. One of Kate‘s uniques skills is her ability to translate between technical and non-technical audiences to achieve alignment. 

Data strategy and infrastructure is foundational in developing a plan that is sustainable and innovative. Kate has experience in mobile gaming, advertising, insurance, higher education and computer software.
