I’m a machine learning engineer and banjo player from Normal, Illinois. Ever since I first programmed LOGO turtles on an Apple IIe, I’ve loved mixing code, math, and art in interactive environments.

I work as an Engineering Manager at Capital One. Previously, I developed ML systems for marketing decisions at Automattic, and I was a data science instructor at Lambda School. I’m interested in how software can give creative feedback to help learners practice new skills.
