Hi! I'm Jeremy, welcome to my blog. I'm a machine learning engineer (currently working at Proofpoint) and all-around nerd. I'm super excited to share what I'm learning here on this blog.
I started this blog for two purposes: to write about what I'm learning in my own words, and to share my perspectives and reflections with others and my future self. The former reason serves mainly to reinforce what I'm learning (you don't really know something unless you can teach it!), while the latter is simply a way for me to share what reflections I've found helpful for me and store a snapshot of my views over the course of my life. Many of the blog posts are a living document, so I'll come back and edit things, add new info, switch out the graphics, etc. These are also pretty informal posts, more of a quick brain dump than a work of literary art.
In all honesty, this is more of a journal than a blog, but I've chosen to make this journal public in the case of a) the content can help someone else and b) someone disagrees and we can have a discussion. I'm a big believer in open, frank critique of ideas and I believe the best way to grow an idea is to attack it. Don't take what I write on here for granted - ask yourself if what I'm talking about makes sense to you. If it doesn't, speak up! Let's have a discussion.
A little bit about myself
I love sailing. I have a small Sunfish that I'll take out on the lakes around Raleigh. I also have a stand-up paddleboard that I'll take out when the winds aren't strong enough for sailing.
Spending time out on the water is a great way to temporarily escape from the crazy world of tech.
I'm a huge adventurer, and I love to travel. I've taken three trips to Europe visiting Spain, Italy, France, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, and the Netherlands, and I have an extensive list of places/cultures I'd like to see/experience.

My interests span from engineering to design to neuroscience and many fields in between - my curiosity fuels an insatiable love for learning new things. I'm also fascinated by entrepreneurship and wish to make my impact through creating businesses that add value to our society.
