Hi Vaidasav, 

I've been working as a Looker developer since 2+ years. I have experience on LookML and Dashboards building using looker and looker studio. I have good knowledge on Power BI as well. Within these 2 years I worked completely on Big Query as a data source. 

Apart from this I am good at data modelling, actions building for multi tab generation while exporting data, data actions for modifying the data from looker in Bigquery. Please let me know if any other details are needed.
