Most of our data science team hails from the program at University of Colorado (which happens to be the home of Dr. Jim Martin, the author of the textbook on natural language processing). This gives us immediate access to some of the best talent and latest thinking in the fields of machine learning and natural language.
As a CEO, I believe it’s important to work with good people and to commit myself to serving them and helping them to grow. As an adventurer, I believe in living a whole-hearted life, to experience as much of the world around me as my time will ultimately allow.
At TravelShark, we strive to make the entropic data of the internet useful. Having more information is only effective if it empowers us to make better decisions, which in turn should lead to a life better lived. Above all, I believe in solving problems that allow me to leave the world in better shape than I found it. That’s why I work here.
I was born rebellious. If you ask my mother, "trouble" was my middle name growing up. Today, I still believe we should always question the norm — and then aspire to transform it in a positive way.
I joined TravelShark because early-stage companies are some of the most challenging and exciting environments in which to breed change. I get to use my creativity, my resourcefulness, and my strategic thinking to help lead a global team of diverse minds. It’s a chance to collaborate on new ideas that can shape the world.
Complexity interests me. From a very young age, I’ve attempted (the key word here is “attempted”) to solve problems that seemed impossible. As a result, I’ve explored a range of fields, from Computer Science to Engineering and Physics. Building complex systems from scratch has been a part of my journey, and that’s always been complemented by my belief in numbers and reliance on mathematics.
Working at travelshark gives me the rare opportunity to work on bleeding edge machine learning research — and I get to create and deploy algorithms as products to users.
