About Me

I am currently working as a data analyst, building dashboards, testing hypothesis, and doing all different kinds of data analysis. The main tools I use are R, Shiny, Python, and SQL. When I am not working my day job, I am blogging at thatdatatho.com and building web applications on my personal website about data that interests me.
