I am an economist turned energy forecaster, banker, and now digital analytics & measurement professional. Currently, I am working for LeadiD as the Manager of Data Sciences…which is just a fancy way of saying for “plays with vast amounts of data from multiple sources!”
I spend my time predominantly working with R and Python as my analysis tools of choice, though in the words of a peer in the industry: “My favorite tool is the one I’m being paid to use…”
When I’m not working or blogging about quantitative stuff, I can usually be found at home, doing home repairs & improvement. Or, making a racket playing bass guitar in my “toy” room! Or, learning about photography…grilling various meats…
Because of the nature of the digital measurement industry, I need to keep up with measurement technologies such as Omniture, Google Analytics, Quantcast, etc. And because of this, any number of web measurement and optimization tools may be installed on this blog at any given time.
If this type of tracking makes you uncomfortable, note that I have no way of knowing anything about you, as there are no means of inputting PII data on this website. To the extent that you leave any comments using the Livefyre functionality installed in the comments section, all authentication is done on the Livefyre side, I have no visibility into the authentication process or any data submitted within.
But, if any of this still makes you uncomfortable, please feel free to browse using FireFox or Chrome Private Browsing, AdBlock or similar plugins…really, whatever makes you feel comfortable consuming the content here.
