I am an experienced Data Scientist with a strong passion for solving problems using Data Science. I have 8 years of professional experience working in the manufacturing, facilities, and healthcare domain. I have also worked on various data science projects in other domains (finance, energy, gaming, IT services, etc.). I am also a certified Brown-Belt in Lean Six Sigma Statistical methodologies with experience in project & stakeholder management. My transition to data science wasn't easy as I faced several rejections until I finally landed one at the end of 2014. My approach to data science is not to work harder or smarter but to work on the right things. I leveraged many personal projects and put together my own curriculum from material that suited my goals, background, and learning style.

I enjoy interacting with students and professionals and helping them transition to data science. I believe the best mentorships are two-way streets, where both people get something out of it. I typically help mentees with career coaching by providing them with a resume template guide, mock interview topics with practice questions, and an excel sheet for job tracking. For data science projects, I usually provide my mentees with a detailed analysis plan template that helps them stay in focus. Of all the ways I think of spending my time, mentoring has one of the highest returns on investment. It enables me to take everything I have learned and pay it forward, shaping the next generation of leaders. I believe the only metrics that will truly matter to my life are the individuals whom I have been able to help, to become better people. Don't hesitate to reach out to me if you need guidance.
