PROJECTS AND INTERESTS
Data Analysis and Visualization
One of my favorite types of projects is to scrape data that relates to my personal life and try to find insights.
I gathered the timestamp information from all of my classmates' submissions in an online class to find out how many people really submit assignments at the last minute.
I am experienced with Linux-based systems, including the Raspberry Pi.
I created this Pi-powered, e-paper display in a picture frame for my mom. Every day it refreshes to show which city I am in.
In addition to managing my own website, I have worked on other sites as well. I currently manage the website for the Philadelphia Freeze Hockey team and field information requests from prospective players.
I have been studying mandarin Chinese since 2008. My writing and reading skills are pretty good, however I still need practice speaking.
This past summer I spent a month in China studying and traveling.
Listening to Podcasts and Volunteering
I am a big fan of podcasts. In my free time, I've been volunteering with Podchaser, the IMDB for podcasts, to help fill in information about who works on episodes.
I use Exist.io to track health stats that don't otherwise connect to each other. It connects to (for example) Apple Health and Fitbit and can compare information from both sources.
I created a Google Spreadsheet that adds information to your Exist profile using the Exist API for stats that Exist isn't able to access through a sync with a third-party site (like MyFitnessPal).
