Day to Day

A great day at work involves loading massive unstructured datasets onto the cloud, running them through GPUs, using deep learning, and trying crazy new tricks that nobody has ever tried and seeing them work. I love having an idea, testing it, and seeing the validation that my inspiration was good. My work lets me work remote, from home, and sometimes even out of the country. I love being appreciated for what I do, not how long I sat at my desk. I use my brain at work, not everyone can say that.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Learn math and programming, study sklearn and python. Be active in local meetups.
