Thanks to Derek Sivers for the concept, and to my friend Dan Reardon for the push.
- Work - I'm a data analyst for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
- Since March, I have been providing full-stack analytical support for CHOP's COVID response; data collection/ingestion, curating an analytical data layer, and analysis and self-serve BI for end-users. Watch me and my colleagues break down the first several weeks at Chicago Lurie's Analytics Conference here.

- Redesigning and rebuilding enterprise Harm Prevention Program infrastructure (with dbt!) to enable analyst and stakeholder self-service, while building trust in the data we use to keep patients safe.
- Building bulletproof ankles as I rehab my way back to (better!) running. Thoughts (and some geeking out) on running here.
- Getting very familiar with my kettlebells and pull-up bar, while I wait for City Fitness to reopen.
