What students are saying:

Jay seemed very excited about the topic and made the course material interesting. He was very open to questions and you never felt like the question you were asking was too simple or too technical.
Jay has a very strong grasp of the material and presents it in an easy to understand way. His examples and illustrations really helped me understand some of the more difficult concepts in the course.
Great course and great instructor. He did a good job explaining concepts technically as well as intuitively.

What is the best part about teaching?
Engaging with the attendees and learning how they're using SAS to solve business problems. So many of the people who attend our classes are passionate SAS users, and talking in depth about specific statistical procedures and best programming practices is one of the things I really look forward to.

Do you have any hobbies, favorite activities, or hidden talents?
I really enjoy fishing, playing golf, and target shooting.

What is your favorite place or dream vacation destination?
I've always wanted to go on a fishing trip down the Amazon River and catch (and release) some of the exotic fish that are only found in that part of the world.

What is your favorite movie, book, artist, or musician?
My favorite books are Liar's Poker and Moneyball, both written by Michael Lewis.

Are you passionate about a particular sports team?
Not any particular sports team, but I'm an avid baseball fan. Statistical analysis is playing an increasing role in how rosters are formed and how managers make decisions, and it's exciting to see how these insights are changing the way the game has been traditionally played.
