I’m a computer science student pursuing an analytics career. Learn more about me here.

This site serves as my online CV and project portfolio. It also hosts my data science notes.

I began studying analytics in late 2017. Since then, I've become convinced of two things:

- The rate at which society generates data is increasing, as is demand for people with analytics skills.
- This work is complex and multifaceted. New techniques, tools, and methodologies are developed every day.
