AGL 283: Predictive Analytics with Eric Olson

About Eric

Eric is a talented data science professional, with a Master’s in Predictive Analytics from Northwestern University. Prior to Consensus, Eric worked at the sports entertainment company DraftKings, where he served as an Analytics Specialist building predictive machine learning models to better understand the user base.

Eric came up with the idea for Consensus after spending years as a die-hard amateur science consumer and wanting access to better evidence-based information at the click of a button. Eric formerly was a three-year starter for the Northwestern University Football team, is an avid skier, loves the outdoors and hopes to someday convince NFL coaches to never punt again.

A2 Hosting

A2 HostingI’ve been using A2 Hosting for several years.  They offer state of the art SSD hosting for all of their plans.  Their sites are super fast and easy to setup.  I rarely need support, but when I was migrating my sites to a larger plan I used their support services and they were phenomenal.  I highly recommend A2 hosting for all of your hosting needs.  And I also recommend everyone to have a personal website. If you’re in technology and looking for a job and don’t have your own website, I probably wouldn’t hire you.  Just sayin’.
