About

I enjoy building things -- idea to product -- and have worked on multiple projects over the years, often to solve a problem, but also exploratory; to develop new interests and technical skills.

I take a generalist approach to learning and personal development, awake hours are typically split between: working on projects, including learning new technologies and solving domain-specific problems; studying (mostly) technical subjects, such as computing, mathematics, finance, economics, and biology; and exercise, in particular mountain biking, road cycling, weight-lifting, and swimming.

I am currently building a collaborative investment management platform to make it easier to invest better together at EQZEN.

Technical Skills

I am a generalist software developer and work comfortably with multiple programming languages, including Java, Python, Lua, Scala, and Ruby. I am familiar with many software related tools, such as Mathematica, Photoshop, PhoneGap, and Corona SDK, and a few cloud platforms, such as AWS and Heroku, as well as various IDEs (but prefer Sublime Text).

  • Web Development I have considerable experience with full-stack web development and have created web applications for 10+ years (mainly working on own projects). I work comfortably with multiple web technologies, including HTML, CSS, jQuery (JavaScript), PHP, MySQL, Flask (Python), Ruby on Rails, Sass, and MongoDB.

  • Data Science I have a strong background in mathematics, including coursework in multivariable calculus and mathematical statistics, and work comfortably with quantitative problems. I am proficient at working with real-world datasets using Python libraries, including NumPy, Pandas, and matplotlib, as well as SQL/ SPARQL, Jupyter Notebook, and spreadsheet tools, such as Microsoft Excel.
