I received my undergraduate degree in mathematics and statistics from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, where I also competed on the men’s soccer team. After a brief stint working on a data quality/collection team in the sports industry, I transitioned into a data analytics/reporting position in E-commerce at Kohl’s supporting the digital vendor marketing team. In August 2019, my then girlfriend (now wife) and I moved from Milwaukee to Nashville to flee the Wisconsin winters and experience something new. After a spell of consulting and working for Metro Nashville Public Schools, I’m now working as a data analyst at Proc9.

My professional interests include statistics, data analysis, and R-programming. Out of the office, I enjoy following Spanish soccer and being active. A few weeks into 2020 quarantine my neighbor introduced me to disc golf – if I’m not at home, you can probably find me on the course. When I’m not outside or traveling, you can find me reading, exploring new music, or researching random topics.
