Bio

In summer 2022, I completed coursework for the Data Analytics and Computational Social Science (DACSS) Masters program at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst (formally graduating later this year). My present position is Senior Systems and Analytics Engineer at the Gandara Center in West Springfield, MA.

I’ve worn many IT hats over the years - sysadmin, DBA, trainer, tech writer - but a day without code is a strange and sad day.
