Beards and Backend

I work primarily with Python, various SQL flavors, Cypher (a native query language to Neo4j) and GraphQL to build and deploy products, conduct analyses, and run experiments. I'm especially interested in the applications of graph database technology and natural language understanding for media intelligence, content development, and public relations work.

Campground

This is a thing I am working on. Eventually it will be a bigger thing, but for now it's just a small thing. There is for sure a website, as well as data coming from different places. There will be users, and they will certainly have a user experience. Said users will also probably be professionals who work for organizations.

Studies and Articles Elsewhere

My writing on integrating data science and research with content development and strategy has been published on the Harvard Business Review and Moz. In a past life, I was a co-author on several studies that explored the interplay of depression and opioid addiciton following major surgery.

I'm also (very proudly) featured on page 37 of The McSweeney's Book of Politics and Musicals
