Like a moth to a flame, I am drawn to anything remotely creative.
Cooking, sculpting, painting, coding, writing - if I can make something with my hands I will try it. I value spending my time building fun and useful projects and pushing the boundaries on what has been done before. I am a product focused full stack developer who can take any concept from prototype to production.
Why data viz?
It all started in undergrad at Georgia Tech 🐝 CS 4460 - Intro to Information Visualization where I learned D3. By that time I already took machine learning, systems, and computer vision classes, but this was the first time I took something out of the classroom and applied it to daily life. I wanted to visualize my finances so I could see where my money was going. I created a custom interactive waterfall chart to show buckets of spending. This would be the first of many projects where I used data viz to visualize personal data points to make better decisions.
