About me

What’s my story?

I grew up in Peterborough, Ontario. It was a wonderful and fortunate childhood, filled with fantasy novels, James Taylor albums, canoe trips, and swim meets.

I studied everything and nothing in McMaster University’s interdisciplinary Arts & Science program, where I found my people.

After a year of teaching writing at a Niagara College in Welland, Ontario, I decided to train as a data scientist. I moved to the west coast to study in the first cohort of the Master of Data Science program at the University of British Columbia.

For the past four years, I’ve been living Vancouver with my partner, Meg. For work, I’m a senior data scientist at Roblox, a gaming platform.

Why should you contact me?

Because then we might become friends! Perhaps you…

  • know of something that I might find interesting.
  • read something on my site that you found interesting.
  • want to collaborate on a project.
  • want to meet me for a (virtual) coffee.

How should you contact me?

The best way is to send me a message on Twitter. You’re also welcome to email me at davidkendalllaing at gmail dot com.
