What students are saying:

Johnny is always very thorough and makes himself available for help, questions and will take time to go over questions that people might have pertaining to how the topic being discussed might relate to their specific job.
He was able to explain complicated theory in a simple way and made the entire three days a very good learning experience. I definitely look forward to my next SAS class.
Johnny was a fantastic instructor. He explained all concepts very clearly, tolerated any and all questions (no matter how ridiculous), and did all of it with a smile. Couldn't have asked for a more competent, experienced, and approachable expert.

What is your favorite training course and why?
Programming 2 because for the most part students have been exposed to the entry level SAS training and this course begins to dive deeper into the guts of how programs are processed.

Do you have any hobbies, favorite activities, or hidden talents?
Fly fishing is actually a lot like SAS programming. At first the tools are overwhelming and intimidating, but after time you begin to approach a task (trout stream) with more confidence and experience, and that makes the whole process more satisfying.

What is your favorite place or dream vacation destination?
Outer space.

If you could share a meal with anyone dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Stephen Hawking, David Sedaris, JFK.
