I like long hikes, big data, and cold craft beer. I currently live in Connecticut with my wife and our Scottish Terrier mix dog, Fiona. When I’m not programming I enjoy visting covered bridges and growing vegetables.
Currently working as a Senior Data Scientist (Fastly). Previously worked as a Data Scientist (Simple), Associate Data Scientist (The Hartford), also in R&D Engineering roles (Medtronic, QDx/Abbott) and as an Aerospace Manufacturing Engineer (AdChem).
I earned a Graduate Certificate in Analytics at DePaul University were I was focused on Data Mining & Computational Methods. Previously took Computer Science courses at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals school. Previously earned a Professional Certificate in Medical Product Development at University of California, Irvine Extension. Previously earned a BSE in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Hartford. My senior research project was to develop a prototype walk-assist device for a T4 Paraplegic client; project nicknamed “Iron man”. I also enjoy studying topics in machine learning, data science and statistics independently through MOOCs and contributing to open source projects.
I like developing open source R software tools to help assist others complete their data analysis work!
I grew up in the Lower Hudson Valley, NY and stayed around Connecticut after undergrad. I’m sometimes available for remote consulting opportunities working with diverse teams to solve interesting challenges with data. Feel free to get in touch with me!
