There are years that ask questions, and years that answer.

About Me:

I’ve been a musician, tree planter, project manager, and a data analyst. I’ve worked in the Canadian publishing industry for ten years.

I am an RStudio and Tidyverse fanatic.

I’m interested in big process oriented projects (Marathon Running, Implementing CASL for Penguin Random House Canada’s email program).

I love making my colleagues and friends’ lives easier (Dashboard Design, Automating personal finance analysis).

Now:

Teaching Myself Woodworking
Using Sketchup and youtube, I’ve been teaching myself woodworking.

Improving my Data Analysis Skills
I’m reading Hadley Wickham’s R for Data Analysis with a focus on improving my GGPlot and modelling skills.

Scoring Very Short Films
As a lockdown project, I recorded some musical sketches to go along with short videos.
