BA Conference Speaker Profile – Alex Hambelton, Oregon Lottery

Can you share with us what attracted you to a career in analytics?

I actually stumbled into my career when I was still in high school. At the time, I had no idea what I wanted to do or where I was going to continue my education. Fortunately, my dad nudged me to apply for an internship with the Oregon Lottery’s Research Department. He thought it would be a good experience and hopefully give me a clue about what to pursue after graduation. All I knew then was that I was good with numbers – I never thought it would turn into a career. Fast-forward nearly 15 years and I’m as hooked as I’ve ever been. I find there’s so much variety with the analytics field that it’s hard to get bored. There’s always a new project, different ways to look at data, and new analytics tools to explore.
