I am a Data Scientist & Founder of

In 2020, I founded, which aims to help journalists, academic researchers, and investors follow the money in politics in real-time, offering lobbying data and insights + a now-famous Twitterbot! The company uses data science techniques to automatically extract the most important details from lobbying filings, such as which companies are lobbying, the agencies they lobby, the names and work experience of the lobbyists they hire, and most importantly: the bills and specific issues they lobby on.

I graduated from Johns Hopkins SAIS with a Master's in International Economics & Finance, and hold a Bachelor's in Economics from NYU. I now attend UC Berkeley's Master of Information and Data Science program concurrently while working.
