Description of my final project 

Identifying Top Talent – Predicting a player’s draft round using NFL Combine measurements, individual and team college statistics.

Why should someone hire you?

I have 5 years of experience developing automated solutions in SQL, Python, and VBA Excel to collect, clean, analyze, validate data. I’ve built models for various business purposes: data integrity validation, provisioning, fraud detection, revenue assurance, and credit risk to name a few. As a Data Analyst, I provided analysis and insights across departments and acted as a bridge between software engineers and business stakeholders. I love digging into data to figure out what’s driving the numbers and how this can be used to make decisions. I strongly believe in the value of team collaboration — working with talented people towards a common goal and seeing how our efforts translate to results really motivates me.
