My name is Eric Vanular. I like solving problems, traveling, and meeting ambitious people. I'm happiest when I'm in nature doing things like snowboarding, hiking, climbing, biking, and camping. I'm passionate about protecting the environment.

I do my best work when I'm helping people, making things, and learning. Some of my favourite past projects have included helping to get more clean energy onto the grid and helping the Government of Ontario build predictive modeling tools to help them forecast operational sales volumes.

I currently provide data consulting services and lead the Data team at Intersect. Previously, I've worked with KPMG LLP, Automattic, TransAlta, and more.

I started this website as a place to document the things I've learned while going through this crazy thing called life. I write about things that I think would help people. You can learn more about me here.
