About Me

I've always been curious at heart. Ever since my family got our first computer when I was 5, I've constantly had my hands on a keyboard. My curiosity got the better of me at 10, when I decided to build my own flash game after hours of playing a lot of NewGrounds games. Though my passion is creative expression through code, I couldn't initially find a sustainable career to match it, so I transitioned to the medical industry where I've spent the last 5 years. However, I continue to hone my programming skills through part time work creating websites for the doctors in my area and side projects.

Data science incorporates creativity and problem-solving, and I'm allowed to tinker with models and research their underlying mathematical foundations to make them work better. I can break things to improve them!

My specialties include quickly learning new skills, problem solving, working well under pressure, leadership, data exploration & visualization, statistical analysis, predictive modeling, data engineering, deep learning, and neural networks. So far I have Python, Pandas, HTML, CSS/SASS, PHP JQuery, Numpy, SQL, Matplotlib, Scipy, Scikit-learn, and Git/GitHub under my belt. I'm still enthusiastically grabbing onto any other programming languages, frameworks, or principles I can integrate into the coding web in my head.
