About this newsletter

How to Data covers topics related to data, analytics, and technology – drawing from my background as an operator and advisor to high-growth technology companies. It focuses on delivering practical insights for data practitioners. I write once or twice a month and enjoy hearing reader feedback.

About me

My name is George Xing and I’ve been a data science and analytics practitioner for most of my career. Most recently, I led the analytics team at Lyft from 2014-2020 and was responsible for driving company-wide decision-making through a period of over 100x growth.

I’m currently exploring my next adventure, while doing a bit of advising and consulting for startups. I’m always excited to talk about data and decision-making. Reach out if you’d like to chat!

You can find me on Twitter @g_xing or on LinkedIn.
