I'm a data software engineer at Intent Media in NYC. We use big data to do user segmentation and value prediction in the ecommerce sector.
I have an M.Eng from Cornell University where I studied distributed computing, information storage, retrieval, natural language processing, and some machine learning.
In the past I've done a lot of work engineering in web applications on both LAMP and .NET stacks. I love Python, done a lot of Java, C#, and Ruby, worked in PHP, and am learning Clojure because I love it's combination of JVM performance and immutable data structures. I have a passion for functional programming and am excited about the inroads it's making into mainstream development.
My dev environment is usually OSX, git, and some combination of IntelliJ (Java), Sublime (JS), Emacs (for lisp/Clojure), and Vim (everything else).
