End of an Era
9/20/2012 was my 8 year anniversary at Deloitte. Today, two weeks later, is my last day. There are many reasons for leaving, but I won't go into them here. You are free to ask in person if you are interested.

Provided below is an infographic that I created and sent to all my co-workers. Many have asked how I got the data. It was simple in theory, but required a lot of data cleansing (one of the many things I do at work, so somehow fitting). The hour estimate I provide in the graphic is probably low b/c my brain is kind of frazzled from working on it until 4am for the last few nights.

I keep all my travel invoice emails so I exported them from Outlook as CSV. I did some manual parsing and clean up, then imported it into Excel for analysis. These steps were repeated about a dozen times before arriving at good clean data. It was especially hard getting anything from before 2005 b/c we weren't required to book travel on-line at the time so my records were poor. However, I manage my bills electronically so I have a full record of all AmEx activity, which I then cross referenced to fill in the missing pieces.

And so I present my farewell message (click for larger image)
