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.
