Twin Cities, Minnesota

From September 2021 to March 2022 I was participating in the UMN FinTech Boot Camp (part-time structure). It focused on Python and its related technologies (pandas, numpy, etc..), first in relation to tech used in finance such as API's, SQL and AWS. Then it was Python as utilized within financial visualization work and machine learning. The final section - on cryptocurrency and blockchain, solidity, etc - somewhat included python as well. Much contented learning/discovering including related areas like Stack Overflow and the Stack Exchange community.

Recently I started a new position at a private college in the Twin Cities - an opportunity to stretch a bit professionally and engage in activities at the enterprise level - very happy!

Work history: 1987 - present - career in Accounting and related areas including Accounting Software integrations, updates, implementations (my favorite part of course), database work, EDI software, also areas like PR, Benefits admin, OS & Tech support. Mostly in NP sector.
