I'm a software engineer at Intent Media in NYC. We use big data to do user segmentation 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. 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, Sublime, and Vim.
