So either you stumbled upon this page or you were directed here. In any case, welcome to the home of Robert Underwood. Obviously, I’m Robert Underwood. Let me tell you a bit about myself.

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. As class valedictorian at Oliver High School in 2005, I was expected to do great things. Then I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Sciences from Carnegie Mellon University in 2009 into the worst recession seen since the Great Depression.

Not a promising start.

Since then, I’ve bounced around in various fields. In my career, I’ve been a desk attendant, test grader, appraisal and BPO reviewer, customer service representative, and bank teller. I went with being apathetic about politics to a conservative and from being unsaved to a born-again Christian. There have been various tips and tricks that I’ve picked up along the way, some of which I hope to share. Some of those were put to the test as I completed a Master of Science in Analytics from American University.

Now that I am officially a data analyst, I hope to improve my skills to the point where I am a data scientist. I’ve come a long way from my humble beginnings, but there is a long way to go.
