  • About Me

    Thank you for taking the time to visit my portfolio. As a technologist, my interests are in software development, machine learning, and computer vision.

    I currently work as an Analytics Engineer at The DX Company, a web analytics engineering studio I founded this year.

    I am also in the process of transitioning to software engineering with machine learning emphasis. I will complete the RustLang bootcamp by end of year and will start the dual-degree MCIT/MSE-DS program at Penn Engineering this Spring.

    I look forward to connecting with you. Please reach out if you think we're a great fit as a contributor to your company or if you need help in setting up a solid foundation of web analytics for your business.
