Copywriter by day, coding ninja by night.
Hi there: I am a former sports journalist and magazine editor, who stumbled into sports data analysis via the "Moneyball" movie and fell in love. Ever since then I have been unable to stop trying to solve sports conundrums with python coding. Welcome to my world.
But, when I first when I started learning to program, I struggled to stay motivated. The examples and projects in many of the beginner courses that I took simply did not inspire me or relate to my interest – which was sports.
Identifying this gap in beginner curriculums, I started to develop Python courses that focus solely on sports-related scenarios, examples, and projects – especially targeted at people like myself.
It is after all a lot easier to learn to program when you’re engaged in the subject matter and working on projects and exercises that actually INTEREST you.
And, finally: when I am not programming, I work as a communications manager - and have had the privilege of working at both the UAE's largest bank (First Abu Dhabi Bank) as well as at Dubai's Expo 2020 mega event most recently.
