Pat Lapomarda

Born & raised in Maine, Pat returned to Maine with his wife in 2002 to raise their 2 children. As a recovering Mathematician, Pat's was a Data Scientist before Data Science was cool. At work, you can find him driving parsimony with data & Occam's Razor while promoting the lost art of analog communication. After work, he's either relaxing in Owls Head, ME and/or watching the New England Patriots win (no haters!)
