Description

Multidisciplinary Data Scientist with 7+ years of experience in geophysical analysis, technical presentations, and client interactions. Experienced utilizing Python in Machine Learning and Time Series Analysis. Interested in the nuanced data driven interactions of everyday life. My focus has primarily been toward energy and environmental concerns, but I enjoy working on any complex puzzle.

I spend most of my free time with my daugther. I also enjoy reading, running, and rock climbing when the opportunity arises. I am fond of studying and playing chess as well as other board games.
