data scientist and blogger in South Dakota

I grew up wanting to be a BMX bike rider and an NFL football player. After 4 broken bones, I decided to pursue the less physically demanding fields of math and computer science. I have a broad background in software engineering and data science. In my career, I have built systems to: track nuclear weapons, process satellite images, ingest millions of dollars a day, and score software development. I am known for being able to quickly build a prototype from a simple idea.
In my personal time, I run one of the most popular data science blogs on the internet and am enjoying a tiny bit of free time after recently completing my Ph.D. in computational science and statistics.

If you know anyone in the NFL, please let them know I am still interested.
