Hire Me Because

Your company’s success will be my top priority. I have adapted to every situation I’ve faced so far, and there is nothing too difficult for me to take on.


While working alongside three other Data Scientist, our team integrated open- source movie databases, examining the elements and attributes of film success, through implementing several varying data types. A classification model was the most apt approach for this problem set, and after I finished acquiring and preparing the data for our team, I ran repeated cross-validation efforts via Scikit-learn’s GridSearchCV; exhaustively searching over several variations of parameters values across every classification estimator applicable to our data frame. These efforts resulted in a successful, significant improvement over the baseline. After recording these success metrics in Jupyter Notebook, we shared our findings with our leaders and peers via live a presentation on Zoom.

“With technology, I am most passionate about supporting a team that handles problem sets which could potentially make waves in society; this field could revolutionize our world.
