Professional Data Services For Civic and Social Development
I help organizations acquire and keep track of data, primarily using Metatab, to document datasets and track provenance.
I’m an expert with Python and Jupyter for analyzing data in a wide range of subjects, for non profits, governments and companies
I’ve designed and built recommender systems, data-driven web applications, and data processing pipelines.
What I Do
I am an entrepreneur, philanthropist, technologist and data analyst, focusing on how to make data easier for nonprofits, journalists, governments and socially oriented companies to use. Professionally, I run a company Civic Knowledge, have a non profit project, The San Diego Regional Data Library, and build open source software, Metatab. I’m currently the board Vice President at The League of Amazing Programmers, and was formally the founding board President at San Diego Canyonlands.
For hobbies, I run a summer Robot Internship in my garage, and am an Assistant Scoutmaster at Troop 506 in La Jolla, CA, and I’m produd to be a husband and father.
Civic Knowledge provides commercial data services for companies, governments and nonprofits.
San Diego Regional Data Library
The San Diego Regional Data Library runs volunteer, pro-bono data projects.
The League of Amazing Programmers teaches kids to code, preparing them for working as professional programmers before they’ve graduated from High School. I am the board Vice President.
Each summer I host 1 to 3 students to work on refurbishing a 6 axis laboratory robot arm, giving them practical experience with programming, electronics and industrial engineering.
