I'm a Staff Data Scientist at the education technology company Quizlet. There, I wear many hats, ranging from data scientist, to data engineer, to software architect, to mentor. I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to apply the diversity of technical fluencies, creative problem solving approaches, and leadership skills that I've gained through years of experience in order to solve problems of large scope and impact. Problems that, in the end, help tens of millions of students across the globe learn more effectively.

When not contributing to education technology, or keeping up with my blog, TheCleverMachine, I like to rock climb, run, mountain bike, cook, make music, and hang out with my partner and our dogs.

I grew up near Asheville, a beautiful town located in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina.
