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 am CTO at the EdTech startup Packback, where I am part of a team that helps inspire the curiosity inside of every student. I was previously director of engineering at Narrative Science
