Hi, I’m Dave – a data and ML/AI enthusiast living near Portland, Oregon – and somewhere on the fediverse.

Professionally, I thrive as part of high-performing teams delivering tech and data products across industries and platforms, most recently in financial services on Microsoft Azure and Databricks. Current teams include data engineering, actuarial data services, data science, and business intelligence for a multi-$B financial services company. Prior roles include leading software engineering and data services for a global legal services firm, leading ERP delivery consulting teams, and delivering IT risk+control services.

My education includes a BSc in Business from Portland State University (cum laude) and an MS of Applied Data Science (candidate) from the University of San Diego. I also hold complementary Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Certified Management Accountant (CMA), and Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) designations.

Most importantly, I love reading/learning, running, and spending time with my family.
