I’m interested in data, Earth Observation, statistical learning, evolution, biological and theoretical physics, machine learning, food science, and more specifically looking to further explore geospatial analysis, decision support, and adaptive learning.
I am currently employed at Shopify as a Data Scientist, having a blast being part of People Analytics. I previously worked for the Canadian Space Agency, Environment and Climate Change Canada, and the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat. 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.
In my free time, I enjoy reading (I’m a huge sci-fi nerd!), Crossfit, conversation, cycling, musical exploration, and 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.
