This site is the place to find me if you’re looking, and occasionally a place for me to sound off on work, my life and travels, and my obsession with weird old movies.

  • My curriculum vitae.
    • I work at Tableau Software’s Vancouver office, where I am bringing Machine Learning to Tableau’s (and now Salesforce’s) data visualization tools.
    • Before that, I was lucky enough to work at Pocket Pixels on the popular iOS photography apps Color Splash and Juxtaposer. I also worked on the Machine Learning parts of news recommender app Zite, which was acquired by Flipboard in 2014.
