I'm a Senior Applied Machine Learning Engineer on the Financial Services team at Shopify where I leverage predictive modelling, quantitative analysis, and systems engineering to power several billion-dollar products for businesses. I graduated from Shopify's Dev Degree program while receiving Carleton University's B.C.S Honours Program in two years as one of the top 30 students in the graduating class.
