Interests

A lot of the work I have done in school, internships and in side projects has been focused on data science and artificial intelligence. Some of my favorite courses I have taken have been in natural language processing, information extraction and machine learning. Go here to read more about some of my favorite projects.

  • Apache Spark
  • Microsoft Bot Framework
  • Tensorflow
  • Cognitive Toolkit

Technologies On-Deck

  • Serverless Computing
  • Blockchain

Side Projects I’m Currently Working On:

  • “Learn It Your Way” - My own Flask API for users to upload a dataset, train one or more models and have a REST endpoint to hit for future predictions

Personal

I’m married to the most beautiful girl in the world and we have an awesome baby boy.

I’ve loved basketball since I could walk (I grew up with a dad and grandpa that coached for 30+ years each), and John Wooden is one of my all-time heroes (for some of my favorite “Wooden-isms”, visit this blog post).

Cheeseburgers are my Kryptonite and I can’t get enough of super-hero movies, but my absolute favorite things in the world are dance parties with my wife and making my son laugh ‘till he squeels.
