Tell us a little about your background.
I am a proud father of one and I am originally from Los Angeles, CA, US, although I now reside in Bowling Green, KY.
My educational background is originally in mathematics - I earned a BA in Mathematics from Western Kentucky University, along with a Stats minor. Most of my college work was very theoretical, with a few applied stats courses thrown in. I had a little R experience, but not very much, when I landed an internship at the apparel company Fruit of the Loom.
When that internship became a job offer on the newly created Data Science team, I knew I had to learn data science – quickly.
DataCamp does a terrific job of helping to guide my learning and help me practice with relevant/useful packages in R. Many courses are taught by the creator of the package themselves! Who could be a better teacher than the package author?
