The purpose of this site is to briefly explain my background, interests and projects that I have worked on.
I am working at a proprietary trading firm in Chicago, I have always had a passion for trading and financial markets and how they rapidly change. Trading is a way I am able to express my creativity in the markets while managing risk, solving problems and executing my ideas.
Being an athlete at heart, I love to compete and work hard. My drive to improve everyday is a quality that has helped me in all aspects of my life. When faced with a problem, I like to dig into the weeds and figure out exactly is going on. For example, SilverGlade Analytics, a program my roommates and I developed while studying at The University of Iowa helps identify patterns from tweets using large data sets. I will talk more about that under ‘Projects’.
Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, mountains, and the ocean. Whenever I can, I try to see new things and explore different cities. The difference of how cultures interact is what interest me the most about traveling because it gives me a broader perspective of the way cities function.
