Hey there! I'm Greg. I'm a developer fellow at the New York Code + Design Academy, where I spend a lot of time working with Ruby and Rails. I also love working with data and R, competing in Kaggle contests, and learning about data visualization and self-quantification.
Outside of coding, I'm usually running or biking around Philadelphia, watching (or rewatching) science fiction films, cooking and eating with my wonderful wife, or walking our dog. I'll occasionally update the ol' blog when I think of something worth sharing, too.
Before diving into the world of web and software development, I worked in psychological research, studying topics like personality, language, and measurement. You can find my research on Google Scholar.
I also enjoy building side projects with a psychological bent. Most of my code is available on my Github, too.
