I am former musician with a successful pivot to the technology field. For several years I have cultivated knowledge on data analysis, data science, data engineering, and general consulting for both technology, big data, and analysts topics. Along with this, machine learning is a topic that fascinates me and I continually look for application opportunities in various fields. Feel free to poke around the site and contact me if you have any questions.
