My formal academic background is in education, psychology, and linguistics. I often like to say my graduate degree was another liberal arts degree. It all led me to working for over 15 years in the fields of education and nonprofit administration in many environments including K-12 schools, universities, museums, and community centers.
I have a few hobby projects that seem to be in a perpetual state of being half-done. I attribute this to Zeno's Paradox - I will never reach the end point. These projects include:
- trying to download and analyze on-time performance for SEPTA's Regional Rail system
- trying to find and analyze results from Philadelphia's City Council elections.
- building a searchable map of Toynbee Tiles
And of course, there's this blog, powered by Python and Pelican. The blog isn't much to look at - I could never be a front end developer. It's mainly a way for me to save all my notes about programming, my favorite recipes (another hobby), and such in an easy to find place.
