Hi, I'm Alexander
Senior Software Engineer / Mentor / Student
Currently I am a Senior Software Engineer at Humana. I previoulsy worked as a Senior Analytics Consultant at Aspect. In my current role I work side by side with data scientist to help build systems that assist members in living healthier lives today and tomorrow.
I obtained my BS in Computer Information Technology from Western Kentucky University where I focused on network hardware and database technologies.
While I enjoy building robust data pipelines and applications to better enable analyst and data scientist to do their work I also really enjoy getting into the source of these systems and making them hum. When I get the opportunity to profile, tune and debug a system is when the fun begins.
When I am not building large scale systems I like to find opportunities to give back to the open source and local community. I have helped develop and teach a Python course with Code Louisville for those looking to start a career in software development. Additionally I try to write about my experience across multiple technologies and provide PRs, documentation and bug fixes to OSS projects as time permits.
Alongside all of that I am an father, husband, reader, runner and gardener in the making.
