I created wrighters.io as a platform to share thoughts on software and data, mostly about Python and some of the many interesting libraries in the Python ecosystem. My Python usage has centered around financial applications, specifically in the proprietary trading industry. I have been using Python as one of my main programming languages since 2010, with other work usually done in C++, bash shell scripts, or R. Although much of my more recent work in Python has been focused around finance, I’m interested in more general use of the language, including applications in data science. I’ve found Python to be a mostly enjoyable and productive language to work with. I’ve spent the last decade working in the proprietary trading industry, mostly trading equities and futures over a wide variety of timescales. I’ve worked on almost every part of the trading process, from infrastructure to risk management to trading strategies to execution. Previously, I have worked for Lehman Brothers in Asset Management and TradeLink, LLC.
Before working in finance, I worked in telecom and manufacturing. I have an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University and a Master’s Degree in Software Engineering from DePaul University.
I’d love to keep in touch, please consider signing up for my newsletter. I typically send out 1-2 emails a month.
