About Me


My Story

Chalenge Masekera is a data analyst with over 3 years experience in turning data into actionable insights that create the best possible value and strategic direction for businesses, product design and improvement actively looking for career opportunities. My interests are in data analytics, information visualization, business development and ICT4D.

I graduated from University of California Berkeley School of Information , with a Masters degree in Information Management and Systems. Before studying at the I School, I worked as a Business Intelligence consultant in Zimbabwe for 3 years.

When I am not immersed in business think, I am watching or playing some sport. My favorites are football, cricket, formula 1, basketball, American football (hand-egg), tennis, okay generally any sport. I also love traveling, exploring nature or helping someone feel better.

I am usually hanging out friends, reading a book on what is wrong with the world (clue - politrickers and their poli-tricks) or trying out new beers. Stouts are my favorite and rate the Bourbon County Brand Stout as the best beer out there!
