I'm a programmer and data analyst with a background in science and engineering. A recurring theme in almost all of my work is the illumination of otherwise invisible information via aggregation, tracking and analysis. I have a résumé and am likely to get emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. I live in Portland Oregon.
A hotels.com price tracker. We've taken the camelcamelcamel concept and applied it to hotels. It turns out that hotel prices change all the time too.
This site no longer exists, but I'm still quite proud of it. HousingTracker compiled housing inventory and price trends during the housing bubble by aggregating online real estate listings. The site was widely cited during the housing bubble and after the Great Recession. Housingtracker existed from 2005 to 2014. Mentions: New York Times, CNN, CalculatedRISK
