I am a data analyst living in Minneapolis.

Though I work in banking now, I had my come-up working in political campaign data, beginning as a field organizer and eventually becoming a Statewide Data Director in Michigan. I spent a lot of my time fighting working with Excel but became annoyed with its limitations as I focused more on data analysis. Somewhere along the line, I was introduced to R, then Python, and the rest is history. It was an instant nerd crush, and I have been expanding my data programming skills since. This blog is my valentine to the possibilities of what can be accomplished with data.

When not dealing with numbers, I can be found running, biking, and enjoying a beer on a patio.
