Leo is passionate about behavior and discovering behavioral patterns in complex datasets. An innate talent for visualizing data and unraveling the psychological underpinnings of human behavior has brought Leo to apply his skills in many different fields.
The explosion of the web (and its social component) has further stimulated Leo's passion for human behavior. With a focus on brand loyalty and customer-brand relationship (both under the larger umbrella of customer insights), Leo is now using his skills to help companies and organizations to gain a deeper understanding of their audience's behavior.
