About Me

Mission: To use data science and machine learning to filter the signal out of the noise and improve our personal decision making

Throughout my life, I've had the opportunity to explore a variety of jobs and cities. From Beijing to Los Angeles, from a Fortune 500 company to a Y Combinator funded startup, I've been exposed to a remarkable number of interesting people and opportunities.

It wasn't until recently that I realized how data science offers a perfect blend of all my interests - programming, data, and story-telling. As a result I'm spending more and more time learning about machine learning, data engineering, data visualization and data analytics in pursuit of a full time data science role upon graduating in April 2019.

My long term aim is to apply data science and machine learning to personal information in order to leverage machine intelligence to extract insights, automate decisions and improve personal decision-making, leading people to focus on what really matters in their life.

I've worked as a McDonalds Swing Manager, run an $86,000 house painting business, worked on growth and strategy in Beijing for IBM, managed the campus ambassador and influencer program for Soylent, and extracted insights as an analyst at Bank of Montreal.

In my spare time you can find me writing on Quora, playing chess, reading, meditating, or deepening my understanding of Buddhism and Stoicism.

What I'm Doing Now

Last updated: April, 2018
The easiest way to see what I'm currently doing is to checkout my personal dashboard.

I'm currently spending the summer in Los Angeles, working as a data science intern at a Series B Fintech startup called PeerStreet.

A project I'm currently working on is Sicana, which is an SMS based service that allows users who lack internet to access facts and crowdsourced answers to common questions. I'm working on building and deploying a machine learning model that can detect user intent.

I'm also doing a deep dive into Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. Here are some books I'm reading:

    Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and TensorFlow: Concepts, Tools, and Techniques to Build Intelligent Systems

    Python Machine Learning, 1st Edition

    Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies

    Everybody Lies

    Weapons of Math Destruction

    Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think

    Turing: Pioneer of the Information Age

    Iwoz: Computer Geek To Cult Icon

    Avogadro Corp

    AI Apocalypse

    The last firewall

    The Turing Exception

    Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software

    The Second Machine Age: Work Progress and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies
