Currently working as an independent consultant. I use my expertise in recommendation systems to helps fast-growing startups build out their RAG applications. I am also the creator of Instructor, Flight, and an ML and data science educator.

If you have general questions for me trying something new, so just make an issue and tag it with question. I'll try to answer it in a blog post.
