Hi, I'm Alexander (n0mn0m in some spaces)
Maker / Mentor / Forever a student
Currently located in Louisville, KY USA I enjoy creating and working on projects that intersect with every day life.
During the day I am at Humana where I help data scientist deploy models that assist providers in understanding patient history and events.
Previously I worked at Elastic as a Senior Software Engineer at where we launched the initial billing integrations for GCP Marketplace. Before that I was a Senior Analytics Consultant for Aspect building solutions in the retail and airline industries.
I obtained my BS in Computer Information Technology from Western Kentucky University where I focused on network hardware and database technologies. I continue to learn through a variety of platforms such as EdX, Element14 and technical publishers like No Starch and Manning.
When I am not at work I like to find opportunities to give back via open source and my local community. I have helped develop and teach Python courses with Code Louisville for those looking to start a career in software engineering. I also like to write about my experience with different stacks, provide documentation PRs, and bug fixes to OSS projects as time permits. Lately most of my personal projects have centered on using a variety of hardware platforms to find new ways to automate and interact with the world around us.
Aside from the technical I am the proud father of Maris and a gardener in the making.
