About Me


I am a data scientist currently focusing on building data intensive applications. I use data to solve problems and visualizations to tell stories. I explore networks and work on creating better recomendation systems.

I want to work on High Performance Computing and making code fast and efficient. I have spent almost all my time working in Python, but other languages I would like to use more are Julia, Swift, & Spark.

Before switching careers and becoming a data scientist I worked in the investment industry.
