Eastern Time (US & Canada) (-04:00 DST)
Hey! I'm a CS/Computational Linguistics graduate, ex-Google intern, and python fanatic. I practically dream in it at this point. I've also worked as a CS and Math tutor/instructor for five years now, and love every second of it. Currently working as a data scientist with a focus in Natural Language Processing.

Hi! I look at *tons* of resumes on a weekly basis, and also conduct a number of interviews for both python developer and data scientists positions. I'd love to help you prepare for your interview, or do a mock interview with feedback to help you improve your interviewing game. I've both conducted dozens of interviews, as well as done lots of them, from startups, to Google/Apple/Amazon/Facebook. Price is for an hour session. Included is a resume critique/review.
