Hey, check out this project!

It predicts crime in Austin, TX zipcodes based on three economic factors



Here's an introduction to one of my favorite projects.

It's a predictive model, in an R script, sitting on my server.

When you click this button, it samples a set of data (crime in 36 zip codes in Austin, TX) and generates a trained model with ~83% of the data (30/36 data points)-- visualized as a predicted confidence interval (upper limit, lower limit, and average prediction), to which test data is applied (the remaining 17% of the data (6 data points)) to see how accurately the model (which is randomly calibrated— "trained" with a randomly selected 83% of the crime-correlated data— when you click) predicts real data.

Click the blue button below to Activate the predictive model for "Assault per 1000 capita per year" in six randomly chosen Austin, TX zipcodes
Please be patient as it might take a few moments to load. And if you refresh, you can click again for a new prediction.

Patrick's Background


2017 — Present
Full Stack Web App Engineer

I picked up Database Design (SQL), Data Engineering (R Language), & Statistical Predictive Modeling (R Language) skills in Grad School.

Soon after I was given the opportunity to work on a Marketo/LiveChat Enterprise Data Integration project at Pulse Secure (NodeJS) in San Jose, CA.

After Pulse Secure, I kept working with NodeJS and picked up ReactJS skills, and published a Full Stack App Prototype (TimeTracker-- for workforce management & map-location dispatching), leading to a role as a Consulting Engineer with Etumos, where my clients included Amazon Alexa, NGINX, And healthcare & financial companies, for whom I worked on Full Stack Apps & ETL projects.

2010 — 2017
Work: Digital Marketing
Self-taught: Web App Development
Formal Study: Accounting & CIS

After graduating UT Austin, I used the communication campaign management skills I built during our legislative campaign to transition into a Marketing career. I managed marketing campaigns for various advertising agencies' clients, part time (evenings/weekends). And worked in Digital Marketing full time for companies such as SolarWinds and BridgeTower Media.

While working in Marketing, I realized the importance and value of Web Application development skills and began building my skills in that direction.

Taking an interest in learning the financial underpinnings of business management, I studied Accounting and CIS formally at Texas State University.

2008 — 2010
Co-founded ReEnergize Texas & Passed Legislation at 81st Texas Legislature

While an undergraduate at UT Austin, A group of about 8 friends and I co-founded a non-profit called ReEnergize Texas. As Legislative Director, I planned the campaign which led to our activation of about two hundred student environmental activists, who then promulgated our activism to a wider audience of thousands of students across Texas, who demanded congressional support for our legislation.

As a result of our initiative, we persuaded Legislators to pass our legislation [HB 3353] [SB 2182] : Allow students to vote to increase tuition at public Texas universities & colleges, which is then allocated to student environmental & natural resource research projects.

As of 2021, this initative has led to approximately $30+ million cumulatively across over a dozen Public and Private Texas Universities, and approximately $5 million at UT Austin alone. [See UT Austin project examples]

Services

What can I do for you?

Consulting on IT & Business Systems

I work with with executives to develop IT Solutions for their business strategies such as Custom application development, and Data integration across multiple enterprise applications & databases.

Customized Application Design & Development

I take applications from idea through execution via requirements gathering, use case planning & diagramming, and development from the ground up. Typically I build apps and services using tools such as: Node.js, ExpressJS, SQL/NoSQL database servers, Cloud providers, Infrastructure as Code frameworks, NGINX, and Linux.

User Interface Design & Development

Though I tend to stick more to Server-side development, I am happy to Design & Develop User Interfaces via CSS Frameworks, ReactJS (currently my favorite frontend javascript framework), and React Native (currently learning— to publish applications on Apple & Android mobile devices).

Back End Web Development

I develop Back End applications & services using Node.js, Various flavors of SQL/NoSQL databases, and DevOps (Cloud, Linux, Docker, etc). I'd like to get more into Python for Data Engineering & Machine Learning-- Previously I've used the R language for Data Engineering & Predictive Statistical Modeling.

Database Design and Application Integration

I have studied Database Management & Design formally. And I greatly appreciate structured databases given that they're typically more easily analyzed than less structured databases. That said, sometimes NoSQL databases are the appropriate solution— such as when database schema is still being determined, or when data simply needs to be open-ended in terms of structure. In either case, I integrate databases into applications as CRUD operations, facilitated by raw database operations, as well as tools such as query-builders & object relational mappers.
