Data Scientist & Engineer based in the Pacific Northwest

Hey! I’m Perry, a data scientist and engineer with 7+ years experience leading data science initiatives in early stage companies. I've recently been a co-founder at Fishtail, a venture-backed trade finance automation platform where we use lots of data science to automate and de-risk global trade. I've worked in a mix of other domains including ag-tech, e-commerce, medical tech, quant finance, and the crypto space. I love working with great people to leverage data, machine learning, and software to solve meaningful problems. I have experience building data pipelines, machine learning models, web applications, and working with APIs, predominantly in Python. Outside of technology and brainstorming startup ideas with friends, I spend almost all my free time in the Montana backcountry, hiking, climbing, and just general outdoor adventuring.

Tech Stack

My tech stack includes: Python, Machine Learning Libraries (NumPy, Scikit-learn, Pandas, Turi Create, TensorFlow, Keras, PyTorch, fastai, Transformers), Web Application Frameworks (Django, Flask, FastAPI), AWS (EC2, RDS, S3, Batch, Lambda, SageMaker), Google Cloud Platform, Docker, Heroku, Bash, Git, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, APIs, Geographic Information Systems and proficiency in Go, Ruby, JavaScript, HTML, CSS
