About Me

Hey, I'm Myles and I'm passionate about data.

In particular, I love working with large, complex, and interesting data sets and deriving insights using techniques which range from simple (basic data visualization, descriptive statistics) to advanced (advanced visualization, inferential statistics, data mining and machine learning).

I am knowledgeable about the concepts, technologies, and techniques now put together under the umbrella of data science (e.g. Big Data, unstructured data, real-time / streaming data & architectures, machine learning) and am excited about the application of these to solve interesting problems, answer difficult questions, and uncover fascinating insights in ways which has never been possible before.
