About Me & Résumé

The school in Wayo-Shan


I am currently (and for the foreseeable future) working as CEO and Lead Data Scientist at my start-up company Analytical Flavor Systems.

I will field, though likely decline, all other offers. (Speaking engagements are ok!)
Ideas, suggestions, spelling corrections, or hate mail, on the other hand, are all gladly accepted.

My time is joyfully fulfilled with product management, project management, sales, marketing, and building machine learning and data science models for understanding the flavor profile of complex beverages.

I did my research on Sensory Science and Data Mining under the direction and tutelage of Dr. Joshua Lambert (food science) & Dr. John Yen (data science).

If you are going okapi hunting please contact me immediately.

What are you Tasting?

  1. Thank you for answering my question on Tea Masters. I’m having a look on your blog, from A to Z. I find it very interesting so far, and understand more about the Tea Institute at Penn State.
    Thanks again.

  2. Hi!! Can you remember me?
    I sat next to you in flight.
    Thank you for gave me a tea that day. It was really great.^^
    I will cherish this as a beautiful memory.

    • Dear Holly,

      I’m so happy you enjoyed the tea,
      I will be posting abut that experience on this blog soon!

      Keep in touch and enjoy Seattle!

      All the Best,

  3. Hi there! found your site while searching for study/travel opportunities regarding tea culture/Chaxi/Gongfucha
    I live in Cincinnati, OH and wanted to know if I could briefly pick your brain on good places to start looking—mainly because I am itching to travel to Taiwan. 🙂
    Xie xie,

    • Hey Max,

      There’s nothing set up anywhere for a proper study of GongFu,
      but Taiwan is defiantly the place to do it!
      (Or the Tea Institute!)

      I’d hit up Stephane from Tea Masters Blog if you want the science and art of brewing,
      or Aaron Fisher from Global Tea Hut if you want the spirituality of tea.

      I suggest visiting both and seeing what you like!
      I’m a researcher myself…

      Let me know if you get any plans firmed up!

      – Jason
