Get in Touch

Hi, my name is Michael Kahan

I'm a data engineering consultant, creator of The Playbook for dbt™ & founder of The Modern Data Community.

You can also find me on YouTube (32K+ subs, 3M+ views) sharing data engineering tutorials & best practices.

Over the past decade, I've built & maintained data architectures at start-ups to Fortune 100 companies.

And since 2020, I've implemented or advised on 10+ dbt™ projects with a focus on clarity & simplicity.


Set dbt foundations that scale

Teams love dbt for how quickly they can get started but often end up overwhelmed, or worse, making a mess.

But with a clear strategy, hands-on support + an end-to-end example to follow, it's easy to stay in control & scale.

There are plenty of consulting firms that help large enterprises, but I only work with data teams of 3 or less.

So if that sounds like you and you want to fast-track your new data warehouse w/ dbt™, I'd love to help!
