MS Data Analytics, BA English: Telling stories with data that anybody can understand.

A multi-vendor certified software development engineer at MetLife that's particularly interested in cybersecurity, machine learning, and natural language processing.

Professionally, I am currently developing data streaming solutions for real-time dashboarding of cloud resource metrics while rapidly prototyping IaC solutions involving Terraform, AKS, and Docker.

Casually, I am currently reviewing Japanese in order to take the JLPT N3 exam, while also experimenting with deep learning-based natural language processing and genetic algorithms.
