As a mentor with a background in both research and industry, I have a wealth of experience to draw upon when guiding individuals through the field of machine learning. My focus is on helping experienced software engineers transition into ML/DS, as well as assisting machine learning engineers in their research endeavors, and getting juniors on the right track for their career.

A typical mentorship session with me will begin with a review of your career, skills, and goals. From there, we will assess the steps and skills needed to achieve those goals and develop a long-term plan and specific projects to support your overall objective.

In addition to my expertise in machine learning, I am also available to discuss topics such as product-market-fit, validation, business models, start-up fundraising, and bootstrapping. I am currently co-founder and principal engineer at an early-stage machine learning start-up, and have a strong understanding of the challenges and considerations involved in this stage of a company's development.

Throughout my career, I have held a number of roles that have allowed me to build a diverse skill set. These include machine learning research scientist in the financial sector and Ph.D. in machine learning algorithms for software engineering and network analysis. I have also completed data science consulting projects on the side.

Working with Chris has been fantastic. He's super knowledgeable about machine learning, and has mentored tons of people before, so he knows the right resources to recommend and how to unblock you when you're stuck. I highly recommend working with Chris if you get the chance.
