A strong liberal arts education and a long career in statistical modeling have left me filled with facts and skills that I am motivated to pass on. Most important of these is a strong intuition for rooting out problems in analyses and finding alternative ways to make things work. I believe these are both teachable skills.

Python

I have been programming in Python for over 8 years. I have developed major applications in Python while working at FICO, and I have developed a browser-based reporting system in Python (with Django) while at another employer. I have also designed a website for my small business using Python and Django.
