Who Are We?

Michael Jancsy, data scientist


Michael is a data scientist living and working in San Francisco. He teaches data science at Galvanize while tending to various side projects, such as this website. In his free time he plays music, bikes around the city, and reads about economics.

Avery Anderson, software engineer


Avery is a software engineer working at the Minerva Project. She rides bikes, climbs rocks, and hikes mountains. She goes to hackathons and she builds things. She is passionate about alternative transportation, the library, and communal living.

Liz Demakos, writer/editor


Hailing from Buffalo, NY under the alias "Coach", is a manager of account management at Zenefits. She spends whatever time she has left as a freelance copyeditor with a penchant for partying and an eagle eye for editing (not to mention an allegiance to alliteration). She loves all things Spanish, and was living and working in South America before putting down roots in San Francisco. When not freelancing, bartending or jetsetting, you can find Liz fighting to retake control of her garden, one spider at a time.

Rachel Cohen, marketing


Rachel is a visual designer at Trulia. In her spare time she likes to think she’s the next great Julia Child, even though most meals result in catastrophe. She also loves to learn more about design and attempt to master the beast that is Adobe Illustrator CS6. Major distractions include: a good cup of coffee, Shiba Inu puppies, and the design section of Pinterest.
