I am a husband to Jill and a dad to Cal and Reese. I’ve spent 10 years in the Army and currently teach at The United States Military Academy at West Point, NY.


While I teach statistics, Data Science has become my hobby. I hope to improve my skills in statistics, machine learning, and computer science to make improvments within the Army and to the world at large.


As my experience with statistics, computer science, and the all encompasing term, data science, increases, I have decided that it is time to share some of my projects.

Creating this blog serves several purposes.

  1. It archives some projects I’ve created.
  2. It makes my work public so I can receive (hopefully) constructive feedback to improve my tools/analysis.
  3. It helps me share what I’ve learned with the community that has been so helpful to me.

During the proces of learning how blogdown works, I saw this timely tweet from David Robinson
