For the past decade or so, I've been studying and working with health care data. I graduated with a Master's degree in Healthcare Economics. And, since then, I've worked in analytics and leadership roles within the health insurance industry.
In grad school I started to enjoy the programming (SAS, R, Stata etc.) much more than the actual writing of research papers. As I transitioned to the business world, I continued to be more interested in the technical side of things...a lot of SQL, a little more SAS, some Python, and occassionaly VBA if I wanted to punish myself.Résumé LinkedIn
Although not the typical background for Econ majors, I also hold a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts. I've specialized in pen & ink drawings of people, typically without clothes. But, I'm also available for portraiture and other commision work.
