I’m your host, Doug Sherk, responsible for just about everything here. This┬áblog is Datastronomy, where I talk about data science, machine learning, and data engineering. I have worked at various times as a software engineer, tech lead, and product manager at companies like Mozilla and Zynga. I have also worked directly on famous products including Firefox, Firefox OS, FarmVille.

I’m currently interested in roles at companies where I can leverage my computer science and software engineering skills in addition to learning more about data science. I am preparing to take a Master’s degree program to bootstrap my statistics and mathematical skills.
