I'm So Happy You Made It

Come In

About Me

Hello! My name is Daniel and I live in New York City with my fiancée and our two dogs.


I graduated from Columbia University with a B.A. in Data Science and M.A. in Statistics.

Why Data?

Choosing a career based in statistics and computer science was not accidental. I am an extremely analytical, data-driven individual who has intuitively utilized a Data-Scientific method (collect, analyze, model, and iterate) for all life decisions. Because, with data we can be certain of our options, and with statistics we can be confident in our choices.

Life philosophy

I believe the secret to success and happiness can be simplified by asking oneself two questions:
1. Did I try?
2. Did I give it everything I had?
If one can consistently answer yes to both then, boundaries are continually pushed, and progress is attained by persistent effort. I use this model to achieve, learn, and grow as a person so that each day I wake up better than the last.
