I'm a data software engineer at Simon Data in NYC.
I have an M.Eng from Cornell University where I studied distributed computing, information storage, retrieval, natural language processing, and some machine learning.
Favorite language is Clojure because functional programming with immutable data structures is beautiful when done right, and the real world JVM performance is impressive. In the past I've done a lot of work engineering in web applications on both LAMP and .NET stacks. I love Python, done a lot of Java, C#, Ruby, and worked in PHP.
My dev environment is usually OSX, git, and some combination of IntelliJ (Java), Sublime (JS), Emacs (for lisp/Clojure), and Vim (everything else).
