About Me

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my page.  My name is Martin and I live in Asker, Norway, with my family.

I have a MSc in Cybernetics with a specialization in robotics from NTNU, but after a summer internship where I got introduced to business intelligence I ended up working with data and analytics instead. I currently work in Alv AS as the head of data and analytics.

Data and analytics is an interesting topic and what draws me into it is the much needed combination of technical skills and soft skills that is needed. Data and numbers are fun on its own, but it can also be quite complex and if it is just lying there it’s not really worth that much. We need to be able to use, and communicate what the data is actually telling us to get the most value out of it.

This is why I find data visualization to be an especially interesting subject. How can we take all the data we available and turn that into something that is easy to read and understand, engaging and pretty on the eyes. That is why I in my spare time plunder with different data visualization projects, and I am also a moderator over at reddit.com/r/dataisbeautiful, a subreddit purely for data visualization.

  1. Hi Martin,

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I am not that experienced in Power BI yet and can use all the help I can get.
    I was so happy founding your blog ” Compare Sales With Last Year on Day in Week in Power BI”. I used your method in my Power BI solution and the outcome was exactly what I was looking for.

    What I’m looking for now is how to calculate this outcome to a cumulative value.
    Is it possible for you to you help me out ?
