It’s magic!

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

                        Arthur C. Clarke

During the day time, I make and explain "magic" with data. Analytics, Big Data, AI, and ML. Rather than calling myself a "full-stack" data scientist, I prefer the term "data science tourist": I hover around multiple topics, landing for a deep dive when something pique my interest. Rather fond of feature engineering and other data puzzles.

After hours, I get to be fascinated by other types of magic. Perception, risk, knowledge acquisition and retention, decision making, "nudges", and mental models, I try to explain to myself how we think and how machines can help.
