Hi (Hello)

updated: 

My name is Bryan Brattlof:

This is me.

Every once in a while, I manage to stumble upon an idea that I feel needs to be published somewhere more persistent than whatever social media platform is in vogue at the time. So I decided to carve out a corner of the interconnected web of computers for myself to publish what I consider "novel" ideas.

Currently, I'm living in New Orleans with my wife, Jordan, and a cat shaped black hole of attention named Ned (after Ned Pepper, the infamous outlaw from the book True Grit, because of a missing bottom lip).

Some History

I started programming back in high school with TI-BASIC that my TI-83 calculator could run, mostly to help me memorize equations and pass the time in lectures by creating simple games.

Programming on TI-83 calculators eventually turned into Python, and Cython projects, as my computing requirements increased (and others telling me how "uncool" I was for carrying around a calculator).

My Wife, Jordan Brattlof

After highschool, I spent a few years doing various things, like training to become a pilot, working as the "minister of maintenance" for a church, and toiling as a ranch hand in South Texas, where I would eventually find the most amazing author and writer (Jordan) that would agree to be my friend forever and wife.

I eventually realized (working outside in 100°F heat will do this) most of my interests are in computer science and math (inside things).

So I moved to New Orleans and enrolled into Tulane University, where I recently graduated with a degree in Applied Computing and Systems Analysis.

Work History

Being a recent graduate, I don't have much to say about work history.

I'm currently working on various projects that I publish on GitLab. I've always enjoyed working and talking about things at the intersections of math, statistics and computers, making Kaggle a wonderful pastime for me.

For a more formal overview of my work history, I'll leave you with this great link: resume.pdf
