About

What I Do

I am a Senior Data Engineer who enjoys developing data pipelines, building machine learning models and performing data analysis.

Oh yeah, I'm a huge astronomy nerd too. During my free time you can find me planetary imaging. I also enjoy the occasional challenge of photographing deep-sky objects with my Dobsonian telescope.
