Life is all about spending time doing what you love, spending time with those you love, and trying to make a difference in the world. I have a passion for solving problems and building effective systems. I have over 10 years of professional experience, and have worked in Web Development, Database Engineering and Data Science.
I can work end-to-end on a data project, from data acquistion to data transformations to predictive modeling and result monitoring
Before data can be used, it must be acquired, transformed and manipulated. Putting the systems in place to automate this process is an essential component of a healthly data ecosystem.
It's essential to understand your business. Whether it is through Data Analysis or Predictive Modeling, Data Science is all about developing hypotheses and testing those hypotheses.
Data Science directly feeds business results. Building great data products and effectively communicating the potential of those products to business leaders, organizations can experience great business results.
Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes - Peter Drucker
Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations about nature and the universe. - Wikipedia
Before any analysis or modeling can be performed, data must be prepared into a useable form. I have 7 years of experience performing the role of a database engineer, which has given me the necessary data munging skills.
Tying Data Science and Data Engineering together it one cohesive bundle requires knowing how to program.
Even the best Data Science can be ineffective if the results can not be efficiently communicated and tracked over time. I have experience creating dashboards, canned reports, web based data products and effective visuals.
When I'm not working, I'm spending time with my kids.
Our past experiences help shape our current state, but our past does not define or limit us.
