Ryan Kuhn

Hi, I'm Ryan Kuhn and I turn data into decisions.

I have been turning data into insights that drive business decisions for the past 8 years. I'm currently working in operations finance at Ortho Clinical Diagnostics where I consolidate performance reporting from several production facilities. Previously, I built financial models while supporting a sales team and data analytics to reduce audit risks. In my free time, I work to expand my skills in analytics such as financial modeling, machine learning and data visualization.

I'm available for hire as a freelance financial modeler. Drop me a line about your project if you're interested in working with me.
