The projects pages on my portfolio are setup like brief case studies to help you get a sense of how I think, work and execute. This portfolio has grown quite a bit over time, and although I'm still proud of my older work, I decided to split my projects into two separate collections, to provide the most recent and relevant work in one collection while still preserving the rest for context. Feel free to read through as many as you like.

Director of Data Science at MagicLinks
I worked with E.J. at MagicLinks, where I was heading up data science and he was heading up product. During that time, we had an excellent and productive partnership. There were a few qualities about E.J. that really stood out to me.

1. Grand Scope of Vision - E.J. could look into the future and see how a lot of pieces would come together to build something remarkable and transformative. Beyond just seeing the end state though, he could see the major pieces that could come together to achieve it.

2. High Technical Acumen - E.J. has a very knowledgeable and realistic understanding of what is achievable through technology, and what is not. Because of that, he is able to create useful product requirements and actually help with high level methodology and process thinking around data products. Because of this, we could always make sure that we were communicating well and understanding one another while developing together.

3. Culture Builder - E.J. was an excellent culture builder at the company. He organized multiple on sites where the team was able to really bond and get excited about the direction of organization. He genuinely cares about everyone he works with and that comes across in the way he interacts with them. He also brings his whole self to the job, which helps add liveliness and fun to the day to day.

I really enjoyed the time that i got to spend working with E.J., and I'd be happy to work with him again in the future if the oportunity arose. In my experience, he'd be an excellent addition to any product organization.
