Hi! I'm Kelman, I'm a Data professional with 5+ years of experience, working in a range of companies & industries. Currently at BizOps @ Rippling, was previously at Uber, Postmates (food delivery), Neuron Mobility (electric scooters) & Urban Planning (Singapore Government). I'd love to mentor your learning journey, helping you cover the key concepts & skills needed to be successful in your job search and career in the field of data & analytics.
I minimize the numbers of mentees I have at a single time, to focus my energy and time. I only accept mentees where I believe I will add value as well. I learn and understand extensively about potential mentees before accepting.
More about me:
I enjoy mentoring, enabling others to get into a career of Data. I have been a mentor on Springboard over the past year and have helped 10+ students graduate and successfully find data related jobs. I am also a Teaching Assistant for the Data Visualization Bootcamp @ UC Berkeley Extension. I am more than happy to design a study plan, review resumes, practice technical & non technical interviews or even work on a data project together.
My background is in information systems & earth systems, where I am passionate about translating complex datasets to inform key business decisions and solving technical problems. My work experience spans the intersection of strategy, urban mobility, marketplace apps and the sharing economy. Always keen to chat about data, SaaS, food delivery, electric scooters, the environment and new opportunities.

Python - Experience in data cleaning, ETL pipelines, analysis and visualization. Familiar with data science stack (pandas, numpy, matplotlib, scikit-learn) and geospatial analysis stack (geopandas, shapely, folium, fiona).
