I am a software engineer, data scientist and expat currently living in Chicago, IL. In the past I was an astrophysicist, working on high performance computing simulations of galaxy formation. Currently, I head up the engineering team at edtech startup Packback, and was previously director of engineering at Narrative Science

Right now, my main software engineering interests are centered around algorithmic art and designing scalable infrastructure and cloud architectures.
