Daniel Yam

Daniel has a master’s degree in Egyptology from the University of Birmingham, and a bachelor’s degree in Ancient History from Macquarie University. He decided to switch career paths to data analysis following encouragement from a friend who had also made a similar career change and discovered his own love and passion for presenting insights in a visually appealing format. Since relocating back to Sydney, he has applied and joined The Data School in order to pursue this new dream. 

In his spare time, he enjoys watching his football team lose miserably and painting tiny miniatures for his self-satisfaction.
