Do you have any skills or talents that people don’t know about?
For fun, I climb mountains. Over the years I’ve climbed the highest peak on 3 continents — Kilimanjaro in Africa, Mt Elbrus in Europe and Aconcagua in South America. I was invited to climb Mt Vinson in Antarctica, but decided not too — because it’s really cold down there.
If I were a superhero, my superpower would be…
To be able to build a logistic regression model while blindfolded.
