Submitted my final assignment for my final course in the Predictive Analytics program from UC Irvine! I enjoyed the coursework and am grateful for my company’s generous tuition reimbursement policy.

Our movers come today to drop off our shipment, bringing to a close our 4-week time spent between a guest room, hotel, and empty house. I’m looking forward to sitting on a couch and cooking with good pans again.
