Profile picture.

Acquire worldly wisdom and adjust your behavior accordingly. If your new behavior gives you a little temporary unpopularity with your peer group ... then to hell with them.

A few major opportunities, clearly recognizable as such, will usually come to one who continuously searches and waits, with a curious mind that loves diagnosis involving multiple variables.

Data Science

How does our access to information influence our worldview? Consider the information we encounter and consume online. Machine learning can be used to change the flow of information we have access to which can then be used to change our behaviour. I sometimes post data analyses to R Pubs, a free publication site for users of the R statistical programming language.

Site Description
RPubs Where I post my data analyses.
Air Pollution Toronto air pollution levels before and after Covid-19 lockdown.


I enjoy taking photos of architecture and other things I see when visiting big cities. I post to Instagram and Pixelfed, the latter being a federated photography platform.

Site Description
Instagram I occasionally post to Instagram.
Pixelfed I like the interface and lack of advertisements on Pixelfed.

User Experience

I've been interested in the graphical user interface of operating systems and the user experience of computers in general since I was a young kid with a Mac IIci. I've recently started looking more seriously into the user experience of open source software.

Site Description
GNOME Gitlab I sometimes contribute to GNOME on their Gitlab instance.
