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. I build systems to empower researchers so they can find data faster, and speed up their research.
I'm a research scientist, data engineer and software developer. I have conducted hundreds of experiments, run dozens of critical systems, and worked in many industries.
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.
