I'm a data scientist, aspiring polymath, and passionately curious about the world.
I'm currently working in Fred Hutch's Data Commonwealth team, working to make data and analysis easily accessible to researchers. My job is to build systems that empower researchers to find exactly the data they're looking for.
I'm a research scientist, data engineer and software developer. I have run hundreds of experiments, built systems worth billions, and worked in dozens of codebases.
I live in Seattle.

Minor in Mathematics
I work with many different tools, languages and frameworks. Here's what I've worked with recently.
Languages and Libraries
I have been working with data and statistics since 2005. Since then I have taught myself a large variety of skills to become a highly competent software engineer and data scientist.
I have also become proficient in many subject areas: online advertising, education, economics, music, cryptography, and much more.
I don’t have a specialty. I am passionately curious.
