About

I’m interested in data, Earth Observation, statistical learning, evolution, biological and theoretical physics, neural networks, food science, and more specifically looking to further explore geospatial analysis, generative algorithms, and adaptive learning.

I am currently employed at Environment and Climate Change Canada. I previously worked for the Canadian Space Agency and Transport Canada. Before that, I spent many years playing music and tending bar. I have a B.Sc. in Geology, with most senior-level credits in Physics. I am currently pursuing the Data Science postgraduate certificate from UC Irvine Extension. I would like to enroll a graduate program in a field related to Machine Learning sometime in the near future.

In my free time, I enjoy reading (I’m a huge sci-fi nerd!), rock climbing, conversation, cycling, musical exploration, and of course anything food-related, from amazing cocktails, weird DIY pickles, to making the perfect pork shoulder. I share this passion with my wife, who runs a wonderful blog chronicling her culinary experiences. People I look up to include Frank Zappa, Richard Feynman, J.K. Rowling, Peter Norvig, and Geoffrey Hinton. You can find me on Kaggle, Github, Twitter and LinkedIn.
