About KDR

I’m a technologist, economist, and writer interested in qualitatively improving learning and work processes.

I took a deep dive into technology 5 years ago and I’m still diving.  I’m a full stack Ruby on Rails developer, a certified Neo4j graph database developer, and I am currently working on certifying my Linux admin knowledge through the Linux Foundation. I’m deeply interested in data science and machine learning, but one thing at a time, right?

Before diving into technology, my focus was engaging public policy and economics from a free-market perspective. I was Managing Editor of Econ Journal Watch, a peer-reviewed journal that takes aim at the economics profession itself. Previously, I did research work with the Rio Grande Foundation and the Mercatus Center. My research focused on federal regulation, budget e-transparency, road safety, and higher education. I hold an M.A. in Economics from George Mason University.
