Stacoscimus is Statistics, Code, Science, and Music — all of which have continually fascinated and inspired me.
High school and UNC Chapel Hill formed me into a biochemist. A stint in medical school at UMich Ann Arbor got me further invested in questions of people's relationships with the world. In 2013 I finished up graduate training in Statistics and Music Theory at the Cognitive and Systematic Musicology Laboratory under the incomparable tutelage of David Huron.
I headed up Data Science at Nomi, where I enjoyed working with some fantastic developers to produce a brand new engagement platform for the physical space. During my time there, our data platform grew from processing a few thousand data points per month to several billion, each submitted by wireless sensors running bash-based firmware I wrote.
Currently, I'm serving as VP of Data at TodayTix, a mobile application dedicated to connecting people to culture -- specifically, discounted last-minute theater tickets! I'm heading up all types of data-based projects and functions, from business intelligence to data infrastructure, internal reporting, log aggregation, and model-driven optimization efforts.
Though I've been spending my days building data products and software, I'm still fascinated by musical questions, compositions and problems -- from audience preferences and emotion to sonata form. Collaborators wanted.
I'm always looking to meet likeminded folks who want to build great things. Feel free to email me at email@example.com to get in touch!
