Hire Me Because

I am a goals-oriented doer with a resilient spirit and keen communicator with developed interpersonal skills that enable me to build and lead diverse teams of talented people.

My Capstone Project: NFL Big Data Bowl 2021

This project is meant to assess NFL data provided by Amazon Web Services for the Kaggle competition hosted by the NFL, perform exploratory analysis to determine key features of defensive plays, positions, and players, and discover what truly prevents a receiving player from catching a pass thrown to them. The project will also provide deliverables that will apply models, features we have engineered, and visuals to the unseen final data. In doing so, this will help NFL teams and analysts access how to draft NFL prospects, review potential trade opportunities, and improve on existing plays to further develop their teams defensively.

“With technology, I am most passionate about finding new discoveries in data that will promote efficiency, innovation, and change.
