Hi, I'm Stuart. Here are a few things about me.
I took dance classes for 10 years, and I was part of the breakdance
team in college.

Indian restaurant challenge!
I lived in Cairo for seven months and London for a year, and at one

People sometimes ask me how I went from working in Political
Science to Computer Science and now Machine Learning. I tell them
