\item {\bf Hobbies:} Poker, Swimming, Running, Video Games, Building things (physical and/or digital) and watching movie documentaries.
\item {\bf Why Industry over Academia?} I love exploring new problems on the forefront of research, but academia moves too slowly and bureaucratically for me. I enjoy working in a fast-paced environment pushing measurable results to clients on a daily timescale, using the skills that I have honed throughout my academic career.
\item {\bf My Ideal Position:} Working with a fun team solving interesting problems. I enjoy every part of development, from deep backend optimization to client-facing applications and interaction. I would love to make a difference wherever and however I am able while leveraging my machine learning, data mining and mathematical background.
