What am I doing now?

I’m an Army cyber warfare officer living in the DC area. I work on data science, machine learning, and computing problems for Army Cyber Command and DARPA.

When I’m not at work you can probably find me reading a book, writing code, or trying to learn something new.

How did I get here?

I fell in love with machine learning while writing my master’s thesis at the University of Edinburgh in 2013. I spent the next few years as the chief communications officer for a mechanized reconnaissance squadron in Germany, but devoted my nights and weekends to teaching myself R and python.

I was recruited for the army’s new cyber warfare branch, and was stationed in DC in 2016 to do data science. I’m involved in research efforts in academia, the army, and at the joint / department of defense level. I can provide more detail here on my résumé, or on LinkedIn.
