Sr. AI Engineer, Acrisure Technology
I help scientists and researchers make real business impact through good engineering.
I believe that relationships matter more than org charts, learning happens best through intelligent action, and that teamwork is leadership. Some things I'm proud of include the students I have helped learn to code, my pun generator, and a talk I delivered at one of the largest data science conferences.
My interests include trustworthy models, imbalanced data, and (of course) putting machine learning into production.
I studied computer science at Baylor University and have worked for companies including TripAdvisor and Indeed. I currently work as a Machine Learning Engineer in Austin, TX
