About

I have spent my career at the nexus of finance, technology, and data. I am driven by the opportunity to solve the world's biggest problems. I am passionate about deploying the latest technology on rapidly growing datasets to glean insights never thought possible. I am a firm believer in the value of systematic solutions while retaining the ability to hack and iterate. I'm skeptical of naive data mining but a deep believer in using technology to test hypotheses. Ultimately, I like to know how the world works, whether that is how capital is allocated or how individuals make decisions.
