Miles is a developer who loves hacking together disparate datasets to create interesting and useful tools. Hailing from New England, he studied econometrics at Wesleyan University, and has worked in quantitative policy evaluation and geospatial analysis. More recently, he has become a self-taught and ardent Pythonista, and was on the Open States team at the Sunlight Foundation, writing open-source code to scrape, standardize, and link together data from tens of thousands of state legislative webpages on a nightly basis.

In his personal and professional programming, Miles aspires to build visualizations, maps, and software that are information-dense but especially easy-to-understand. In his free time, he enjoys a healthy mix of soccer, hiking, travel, Wikipedia binging, and board games.
