Hi there πŸ‘‹

I love making data useful to people! My skills are best in data manipulation, systems administration/engineering, and untangling complicated data/lineages.

Recently I’ve been busy with work and starting graduate school but thankfully I’m back in a position where I can start updating my projects again. Keep an eye out for new content and check out my resume in the meantime. If you’re intersted in something I haven’t posted yet, send me an email and I’ll be happy to talk!

Outside of work and school I enjoy tea, immersive experiences, and my data side-hobby is datasets of cultural institutions.

πŸ“ I'm not dead yet!

But the best laid plans often go awry… It’s been a long semester for me. Despite not having a numerically harder schedule in raw credits, I’ve been buried under a continual avalanche of things needing to get done. My sleep app informs me that I’ve only gone to bed before 3AM once this week, a trend that’s not going to be broken tonight as I write this due to what I have due tommor-… er, well… today.
