One of my first flashbulb memories I have was in researching the best methods to manipulate the virtual markets of Dark Age of Camelot; I knew that if I could anticipate shopping habits of players, I could meet surges in supply and not only meet the needs of my fellow gamers, but turn a healthy profit in the process. It would take more than fifteen years, before I would realize that there's an entire academic and professional career built upon that principle: Business Intelligence.
This melding of professional and recreational passions is something that has been a key factor in my constant drive to excel. Whether it's combining advanced mathematics with the issues it raises in the social sector (i.e. privacy), or in recognizing the inadequacies of a favored hobby, my life has always consisted of an enjoyable and healthy work-life balance.
