Kevin Feasel is a Microsoft Data Platform MVP and the engineering manager of the Predictive Analytics team at ChannelAdvisor, where he specializes in T-SQL and R development, fighting with Kafka, and pulling rabbits out of hats on demand. He started his post-graduate career as a web developer working for the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services, where he was the slowest to run away from the database and thereby became the de facto database administrator. Later, he became the de jure database administrator for the agency. Eventually moving on from there, he did additional work as a database administrator focusing on data warehousing and ETL solutions. At the end of 2013, he became a database engineer at ChannelAdvisor. In January of 2017, he started his current role as the manager of a new team dedicated to predictive analytics.
