Data Engineering, Machine Learning, Web Applications, and DevOps

I'm most comfortable in Data Engineering, Web development, Machine Learning, and DevOps in that order. That said, my background is pretty diverse so I rarely find myself shying away from new technology or challenging projects. I started building web applications in C# and .NET for a logistics company. As a side project, I made a mobile game called ZenShift in 2011 that was downloaded 150,000 times with a solid 5-star rating in over 40 countries. A few years later I started a business that used web crawling to download hundreds of millions of web pages, machine learning to detect human trafficking ads, from there law enforcement used an interface that I built using Node.JS, MongoDB, Elasticsearch, D3.js and Angular.js to setup sting operations. We got into Y Combinator and then sold to a DARPA contractor. Now I work at Eventbrite as the Principal Data engineer. I work on data pipelines, machine learning, API integrations and dev ops for large-scale projects.
