My name is John L. Taylor. I am, in no particular order and among other things, an aspiring polymath, intellectual magpie, cultural gadfly, father and husband, data geek, plain-old-geek, bibliophile, pop cultural glutton, recreational mathematician, and skeptic. 

I am currently exploring Portland with my family, working downtown, writing a book and collecting notes at a glacial pace, and seeking-out interesting conversation wherever it may be had. [more]
I work as a Senior Data Analyst at iovation.
Work is not the opposite of play.

My professional interests lie in the application of open source and commercial analysis stacks to problems in various domains, with emphasis on data mining methods.

The future's pretty cool!
