Meet Andrew Millett
As Data Analyst at Blast Analytics, Andrew helps organizations transform, translate, model, and interpret data to gain the insights they need. Understanding that data holds the answers to many questions, but that those answers aren’t always immediately visible, Andrew works to uncover the information that matters most to a business.
Prior to joining Blast in 2020, Andrew was a Data Science Intern for Progressive Leasing, helping with their risk management team to identify anomalies across the business.
Andrew received a BS in Statistics from Brigham Young University in Provo, taking classes in R coding, common data science practices, and advanced statistical methods that help in his day-to-day job today.
More about Andrew
I joined Blast…
Because I could tell it was a company that really cared for its community and its employees. I saw how many charities that Blast donates time and money to, and how much they encourage us to be active citizens and help our own communities across the country.
A cool part of my job is…
The opportunities I have to learn. Since I came to Blast, I have learned more about natural language processing, forecasting methods, look alike modeling, and all kinds of lessons for the different domains I have worked in.
My consulting “philosophy” is…
To provide clear insights to the really difficult questions. Lots of my clients aren’t even sure what methods exist to answer their questions, but I love getting to the core of the problem they need answered and showing them what their data is hiding.
It’s not on my resume, but…
I really love to bake and cook. At one point I considered picking up a job at a bakery.
One of my first jobs was…
Helping ship fabric squares and cutting yards of fabric for a local business called Emerald City Fabrics.
The most interesting place I’ve traveled is…
Yosemite National Park, which is nice and close. My mom gave me a healthy love of flora and fauna, and my dad inspired me to spend as much time as I can outdoors. Yosemite was beautiful to behold and very interesting to see the kinds of wildlife in the area.
My hobbies include…
While I do love hiking and have climbed several mountains (including Utah’s highest peak), I also enjoy spending time playing video games with my friends who live several states away.
A favorite quote of mine is…
“To love people, to be indispensable somewhere, that is the purpose of life. That is the secret of happiness” – J. Edgar Park
