I've been an actuary for almost eight years now, and I am excited to be hosting a place for actuaries to connect and discuss the profession. Some of you may recognize me from my failed attempt at becoming a Board Member of the CAS - though, given the voting results you probably don't!
I have a stuffed Emu sitting on my desk, and unfortunately, there are no signs of Doug nearby. I work for Liberty Mutual in Product Management and my work is sort of a blend of data science, economic theory, and working with lots of people (this site is not affiliated with Liberty).
I live in Seattle, WA and I love the city - the food is epic and the mountains and water are so close. I'm excited for the Kraken to arrive. I'm also an Iowa Hawkeyes fan. I hate the rain and gray skies in the winter, but everything else makes up for it. Please don't move here and make things more expensive. Or do, because I just bought a house and I want it to be worth more. Just don't make traffic worse.
Cheers! And welcome to the site.
