"Never let success go to your head and never let failure go to your heart" -Ziad K.Abdelnour
I have been working in analytics for more than four years and have loved every second of it. I am a highly motivated individual who always loves to learn new technologies and solve problems. I focus on analyzing large data sets and creating machine learning models to help businesses make the right decisions using data-driven decision-making. I am experienced in Python, Data Cleaning, Data Visualization, and Machine Learning.
I played soccer professionally for several years in countries such as Germany and Canada. Following my soccer career, I attended and graduated from the University of British Columbia. While finishing my last year in University, I joined the Vancouver Whitecaps FC (Major League Soccer) as a performance analyst intern. Following my internship, I got hired as a full-time analyst. I was responsible for assisting the head of the analytics department and led the department after I lost my supervisor. I developed a strong passion for learning new technologies and data-related tasks throughout my time with the Whitecaps. As a result, I decided to shift into the Data Science industry. I graduated from the University of Denver's Data Science Master's program. I am currently working at Kohl's as a Data Scientist, as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Denver and as a Data Science Mentor at SharpestMinds. My love for analyzing big data, coding, and my willingness to help other people have shaped me as a person and help me reach my career goals.
I am fluent in Farsi, German, and English. While I am not working or studying new technologies, I spend time with my family, in the gym, play soccer or read/write data science blogs. I truly believe that there is nothing more beautiful in life than learning new skills and reinventing yourself to become better as every day passes.
