My name is August Guadamuz. I consider myself to be a person who is constantly learning, specifically in the areas of data analysis, forecasting, operations research/management science (the science of better), and optimization. I am passionate about Six Sigma process improvement as a means for organizations to eliminate waste, run lean, and operate at peak efficiency. I am a student of R, the software environment for statistical computing and graphics.
I am currently working through the book Machine Learning with R and will be posting my work from that project. One of my goals is to publish to R-Bloggers (http://www.r-bloggers.com/). I am hoping to write on forecasting in R as well.
Outside of analytics, I am interested in politics, popular culture, training in muay thai kickboxing, skeet shooting, fishing, hiking, comic books and committing random acts of kindness.
I hope to connect with other people interested in analytics, statistics, and separating the signal from the noise. I hope that if you are reading this, you may be one of those people.
