My Computer is Using 19 GB of Virtual Memory

RAMtastic

And all of its RAM

This happens a lot.

Some of it can be attributed to the various Chrome tabs I have open at any given time (Google Chrome Helpers out the wazoo). The rest of the blame falls on the work I do on-the-daily: data science and animation.

Who am I?

I’m Sam Abrahams– math nerd, programmer, and digital-media dude. I graduated from the University of Richmond in 2014 with a B.S. in Mathematical Economics (more statistics, less abstract algebra). After moving out to the west coast, I began seeking out analyst jobs all over Los Angeles. However, as I was interviewing for those jobs, I was given the opportunity to do a short 2D animation for Illumination Entertainment- best known for these yellow guys. They liked my work, and so I became a contracted artist with them. Since then, I’ve been doing animation for my job, while machine learning and programming have become the focus of my studies and personal projects.

Blog.

It’s been a hell of a year for me, and I have a lot of exciting things now going on and planned for the future. I want this blog to be a repository for people to see what I’m working on and thinking about in the fields of machine learning, programming, and animation. Occasionally, I will try to write detailed tutorials for certain tasks I’ve become proficient at, and at the very least I will share thoughts on the latest hot things.

One post down. Let’s do this!
-Sam
