Over the years I have taught myself HTML5/CSS (hence the Bootstrap template I am using here), Photoshop and Illustrator for design and painting, and more recently R and Python for data science and machine learning. I have published articles in Medium and led local Data Scientist Meetups to help others. For me the merging of my fine art and design skills into data analysis is a natural progression and reflects the field’s direction in general.
Data Analytics and Design Consultant
When I am not crunching numbers or working on a design, my dog Sal and I run, hike, bike on the road and trails, kayak, climb, snowshoe, ski, snowboard, paddleboard and occasionally when the waves are big enough I surf on usually a cold Lake Champlain. When it is too miserable to go outside I paint, create digital illustrations or build and paint things like my kitchen table, kayaks and even a paddleboard from scratch. I am always looking for the next challenge and never stop trying to learn.
