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 resume and am likely to get emails sent to email@example.com. I live in Portland Oregon. Here are some of my projects.

Light analysis of publicly available datasets from the Census, BLS and other public sources. Datasets include income, unemployment, rent and more. In March of 2020 I started tracking daily COVID-19 case and testing statistics by state to try to understand the US outbreak better.
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. It also turns out that hotels are not as willing to share this data anymore and the site is on indefinite hiatus.
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
