My name is Paul Nelson 👋. I am a technophile, data engineer, tinkerer and life-long learner. I have a passion for learning new technologies and I hope to share some of my knowledge with you as I gain new insights along my learning journey.

I live in Halifax, NS with my beautiful wife Sarah and our two wonderful children, Rosie and Miles.

You can usually find me spending quality time with my family or nose-deep into a computer.
