Ira Sharenow's Data Analytics

About Ira

I am originally from New Jersey. I currently live in El Cerrito, CA.

I received a B.A. in mathematics from Rutgers University. I received an M.A. in mathematics and an M.S. in business from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. More recently, I have been enjoying online learning with a focus on data analysis. I thank Stanford University, M.I.T., Caltech, and EdX for providing high quality online courses for free. I am also developing an interest in Tableau.

I enjoy bicycling, walking and rooting for the University of Wisconsin Badgers. Favorite stores: Monterey Market (Berkeley) and Rainbow Grocery (San Francisco).
