Hire Me Because

My Computer Science background gives me a strong set of fundamentals, and my experience at Codeup has given me the tools and skillset to gather insight and help your business overcome whatever challenges it may face.

My Capstone Project: Michelin Guide

Developed a Natural Language Processing (NLP) model to determine the Michelin star rating of a restaurant based on other information pulled from their review. The data was captured using web scraping on the Michelin Guide website and was examined for predictors of the restaurants’ ratings, including word count, sentiment analysis, and a machine learning analysis of the review contents. The final model exceeded the baseline’s accuracy by 39% Environment – Python, Numpy, Pandas, Seaborn, Matplotlib, Natural Language Toolkit (nltk), scikit-learn
