About Kent:

I currently sit on the strategic intelligence team for League of Legends, where I am responsible for financial analysis, data support, and strategic advising for Riot. My job is not only to report on our KPIs, but understand what moves them, and how we can improve our business.


I love solving wicked problems anyway I can. The tools I use depend on the question, but they often include things like data analytics through SQL, Databricks, Python, R, Excel, and Tableau, or more open-ended tools like frameworks, stakeholder meetings, and player research.  


Specific projects include,  

-Completing and socializing the 2018-2019 financial forecast for Riot Games

-Building a time-series based competitive market tracker using open text data. Analyzed in PySpark through a custom build SQL table, visualized in Tableau

-Creation of monthly, and quarterly business review slides for the Board of Directors

-Curating and presenting a monthly KPI review meeting to League leadership and key stakeholders

-Creating a competitive analysis of Twitch influencers and viewership behavior on game health

-Conducting high value ad-hoc analyzes on game health, player behavior, and competitive trends
