Hi, I’m Nick. I like bringing data, evidence, and predictive modeling to bear on a wide range of issues. This website documents some of the work I do and the subjects I explore.
I grew up in the Bay Area and currently live in Brooklyn where I freelance as a data scientist. I like to play the piano, travel, learn about subjects I know nothing about, read kaggle forums, and watch trashy TV.
Prior to this, I worked at a small digital agency where I got to learn from some incredibly bright people and worked in a variety of different roles (sales, product, project management, account management). I managed digital projects with talented teams for a range of clients in different verticals, including Lazard, American Express, Estee Lauder, IHS, and Elsevier. Eventually, data science courses, kaggle, and Python started consuming all of my time, so I made the switch full-time.
I have a B.A. in a custom major focusing on math, linguistics, and physics from NYU.
