Alexandria, VA, USA
After 10 years in sales and real estate, I landed my dream job working for one of the largest developers in the country. After a crazy year with lots of personal loss and some serious health issues I was afforded a lot of time for reflection. I realized chasing wealth was making me miserable, and that the only part of my job that I enjoyed was the income. My two favorite days of work were the day I built an excel workbook that turned a 30 minute task into a 3 minute task,and the day I crunched the national data from the largest brokerage firms to figure out where we should focus our speculative search.
Since realizing my affinity for data science, I've been nerding out on data science and artificial intelligence. From June to November, I've taken Algebra 1, Algebra 2 and PreCalc on Khan academy for a review. I've been learning trig and calculus on my own through online resources and the University of Wisconsin Independent Learning program. I just found Lambda School and am planing to join the Jan 13, 2020 DS program.
When I'm not trying to code or learn math you can find me on the jiujitsu mats, bouldering walls or spending time with my wonderful wife Emily.
