programmer, builder & astronaut

I'm a former NYU physics/astronomy grad student and current mad data scientist at fast forward labs. I spend my days moving data at light speed and my nights crusading against bad code. I also like building and coffee.

code — the things that have been keeping me busy on the computer

  • go count me a leveldb backed k-min values database to store and compare large sets
  • count me maybe python explorations of probabilistic distinct value estimation and hash entropy
  • forget table a sweet redis based database that stores categorical distributions and forgets data smartly.
  • cider-go use any redis client to talk to a cluster of redis servers with redundant shards for great win.
  • bitly story api want to know what going on with a set of urls? this is thing for you!
  • bitly realtime bad ass math and databases showing you what's happening on the internet.
  • realtime streams learn about real time stream processing with bitly's simplehttp suite. do it.
  • shell-config need awesome bash/zsh/vim/screen configurations? look no further!
  • seamresize resize things smartly. toy project but still awesome.
  • academic page my old site from grad school... chock full of fun code in what I thought was a website.
  • outflow-driven turbulence massively parallel code to see how new stars stir turbulence. read the paper!
  • misc code a github repo of some stuff I made before embracing git... enjoy!
  • other stuff! venture into my github page and see what else there is.
