I'm pursuing socio-technical innovation, and hope to help utilize tech to impact communities.
The technical has mainly been focused on Analytics and Data Science, though I like to try to keep up with other tool methods in tech. Some of my experience comes from the Polling and Open Data Initative, where I served as the Director of Partner Development, and later Director of Technology.
Some more about me
Beyond my professional pursuits, I really love playing around with microcontrollers and 3D printing, and hope to open a makerspace one day. I started learning greek in hopes to read the original works of thinkers from the Hellinistic age. I got into data science through Daryl Morey and his innovation in basketball through data, and really love analytics-driven basketball. I also like ..basketball.
