Josh’s top skills is the ability to understand business challenges, framing up a ML solution to help solve the problem, then the technical know-how and grit to deliver from start to finish.

Josh has background as a Data Scientist with some of the top companies in Twin Cities (Minneapolis & St. Paul, MN) as well as Data Science consultant in the Energy industry. He has spent most of his career wrestling with large datasets, predictive analytics, and added an MBA and MS in Data Science along the way. He leverages machine learning, analysis, and software development to solve problems.

Some of Josh’s favorite ML libraries used are scikit-learn, Keras, and Apache Spark, but tries not to get too attached to any one, as the tools are evolving quickly.  He also spends a significant amount of time with big data tools within the Hadoop ecosystem, along with cloud computing in Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and AWS.

Besides Data Science, a favorite hobby for Josh has been iOS mobile App development.  His first App was launched on Apple’s app store in 2012, and since has developed and launched eight Apps (as a contractor and independent developer).
