I graduated with a BS and MS in Computer Engineering and a Mathematics Minor from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, GO ILLINI! My concentration was in Computer Architecture and High Performance Multi-Core Processors. I have over 12 years of experience in the Software industry, I’ve worked for Microsoft, Intel, a startup in the Medical field, and a couple Aerospace companies.
All of this experience has helped me in Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) a great deal, being able to analyze large amounts of data, solving problems every day, programming to solve complex problems faster, writing scripts to automate daily tasks, etc.
I started playing DFS in 2011, and first started by building a simple spreadsheet to create projections and an NBA lineup Optimizer. Back then there were no sources or websites that offered daily projections. Over the last 5 years I have improved and added many more variables to my NBA model, even to this day, I am constantly adding new advanced stats all the time.
My daily process includes doing projections for every single player, then feed the projections into my lineup optimizer, which generates an Excel file with thousands of lineups from the player pool I’ve selected.
