He spends his spare time watching cancelled tv shows on Netflix, homebrewing beer, and hanging out with his wife, son, and twin daughters. Once, he took advantage of a Wendy's/Airtran promotion loophole, which may have included some dumpster diving. He and four friends flew across the country to San Francisco for and all-expenses-paid vacation.
Xiao Zhou Analyst Team Lead
Xiao loves data. He finds purpose in helping people discover game-changing insights. Prior to RJMetrics, he spent time creating an algorithm that forecasts traveler intentions, and also got his hands dirty at designing a satellite at the CSA (Canadian NASA), and building a fitness machine for the physically disabled.

Instead he enjoys playing the guitar and banjo, reading in Rittenhouse Square, and biking to the city's many coffee shops and restaurants.
Tara Carlin Support Team Lead
Tara graduated from Drexel University with a degree in Information Technology. She loves the relationship between technology and solving problems, and therefore has dreams of technology creation that border on grandiose. Perhaps because Tara has realized that grandiose is great motivation, a love of the TV show ER turned into an EMT certification. An enjoyment of power tools led her to become a foreman with volunteer home repair. And after many failed attempts, she finally learned how to toss pizza dough.
Francis Ryan Engineer
Francis, more commonly known as Buck, graduated from Drexel University, having studied Math and Computer Science. His favorite thing to do is take pictures and his favorite place to be is at any beer garden in Germany. Until his next excursion abroad, he looks forward to days learning more about Computer Science, running throughout Philadelphia, and learning how to swing dance.
Zach Kozac Graphic Designer
Zach knew he wanted to be a designer years before entering into Temple University's Advertising Design program. Since graduating, Zach has worked in many facets of the graphic design industry. Before coming to RJMetrics, he was the Creative Director at Jarvus Innovations, a small web start-up in Northern Liberties.

He dares you.
Ben Garvey Engineer
Ben worked for 10 years in industrial automation after getting a BS in Computer Science from American University. He enjoys writing songs, brewing beer, and indoctrinating the nation's youth into role playing games. A self described chart junkie, Ben developed what Technically Philly called, "the coolest, most comprehensive City of Philadelphia budget visualization you've ever seen."
Peter Marinari Director of Account Management
Peter holds a degree in Journalism from Drexel University. After a brief stint in higher ed administration, he spent ten years developing marketing campaigns for clients in the health care industry. His move to RJMetrics highlights a longtime love affair with relational databases. Peter once jumped out of a plane as a team-building exercise; it worked pretty well.

Seth Faigin VP of Sales and Account Management
Seth is a University of Florida alum and now heads up sales and account management. His illustrious career began serving up 31 flavors of ice cream and now he serves unlimited flavors of data. When not helping clients improve their business, Seth can be found adding to his sneaker and t-shirt collections. If you have a business in need of accessing and understanding their data and/or a unique sneaker or t-shirt, Seth awaits your call!
Sarah Howard Account Manager
Sarah graduated with a BS in Hospitality Administration at Boston University. With her advanced skills in Hotel and Restaurant Management, she naturally dove right into the tech startup industry. Through her experience, she mastered and coined the term, "technical therapy" - stabilizing and strengthening client relationships. In her spare time, you can find Sarah running or lifting weights to counter the countless dinners and desserts she makes from scratch.
Brian Signer Director of Sales
Brian received both a B.A. in History and a J.D. from the University of Florida. Deciding law was not for him, he embarked on a glorious career in sales. In his spare time, he writes screenplays (hopefully one coming soon to a theatre near you), watches sports, and contemplates the meaning of life and other lite fare.
Anita Garimella Andrews VP, Client Analytics Services
After graduating high school when she was 16, Anita went to NYU and by 18, had a degree in Politics and a minor in Mathematics. This gave her plenty of time in life to do worthwhile things like foster her loves for eating desserts, working out, watching movies (which she has very low standards for), and reading. After fighting urban blight, improving immigrant rights, and raising the bar on NYC living by working for then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani, she decided campaigns weren't her thing and got her Master's in Computer Science from Stanford. Along the way, she's run product, marketing, analytics and e-commerce at a variety of companies including Ingenio (bought by AT&T YellowPages), Nutrisystem, and Sepiida (which she founded and was acquired by Delphic Digital). In her spare time, she tries to do a good job as a wife and mother to her 17 month old daughter.
Ben Ramsey Director of Sales
Ben is the tallest person at RJ and would like everyone to know that he does not, in fact, play basketball. He recently moved here from NYC, where he's spent his career building and growing sales teams in start-up organizations. A graduate from Hobart College (he hadn't heard of it either) and a four-year rower there, he's excited to join the happening scene here in Philly.
Jonah Coste Analyst
Jonah studied Computational Finance at Carnegie Mellon University. He moved to Philadelphia after graduating to train for the USRowing National Team (he came close).

He once spent a weekend in the wilderness training for the apocalypse.
Janessa Lantz Director of Content Marketing
Janessa moved to Philadelphia to get her BS in Fashion Marketing at the Art Institute of Philadelphia. She got the degree, fell in love with the city, and happily ditched the fashion industry in favor of business-to-business SaaS marketing. Janessa grew up without television so she won’t get any pop culture references pre-2005, and probably very few after that. In her spare time she’s usually reading, napping, or delivering spontaneous lectures on her current topics of interest.
Maya Salloum Account Manager
Maya graduated from the Art Institute of Philadelphia with a Bachelors of Science in Fashion Marketing. She honed her customer service skills working as an affiliate marketing coordinator and a store manager. She enjoys binge-watching tv shows with her fiancé, cuddling with her kittens (Gizmo and Fez), the color red, and all things vintage.
Stephanie Liu Front End Developer
Stephanie graduated from Villanova University as a Biology major, only to find her true calling in the tech industry. She enjoys indulging in the simple pleasures of life such as consuming more ramen than she would like to admit, curling up with a good book, and watching Pixar movies as often as possible. She is also currently, though hopefully temporarily, the most pop-culturally stunted person at RJMetrics.
Drew Banin Developer Co-op
Drew is currently attending Drexel University in pursuit of a degree in Computer Science. While Drew cares deeply about data analysis and visualization, his true passions are flag football and rap music. Though Drew owns a record player, he maintains that he is not a hipster. Honest.
Mia Lopez Sales Ops
Mia recently graduated Santa Clara University with a degree in Finance. It seemed practical at the time, but while living in The Valley, she caught the startup bug. She then found her way to RJMetrics. Mia is obsessed with analytics, her adorable new puppy Elliot and Law and Order: SVU. No really, she has watched every single episode, most of them more than once. She will defend the Miami Heat in any type of duel and (unrelated) once wrestled a duck.
Michael Gerstein Account Manager
Michael graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelors of Science in Electrical & Computer Engineering. In addition to earning his degree, he also earned a championship while playing for the Rutgers University Inner-Tube Water Polo Team. In his spare time, Michael enjoys going on new excursions, playing pick-up basketball, and hashtagging BigData.

Jay Olman Analyst
Jay is a big fan of new companies and entrepreneurship. Having studied mechanical engineering at Penn, he invented consumer goods at a product development startup before joining RJMetrics. A scientist at heart, Jay's kitchen is a de facto culinary laboratory—safety glasses encouraged, earplugs not required (usually). He enjoys living in Philadelphia and welcomes any excuse to visit the Palestra.
Jordan Chazin Analyst
Jordan studied Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University, and has lived in Philadelphia since graduating in 2009. Prior to joining RJMetrics, he worked as a Research analyst at a Private Equity firm. When he's not working, he enjoys running, watching Phillies games, and playing the guitar. He was once in a band that opened for the B-52's in Atlantic City.
Alex Kleger Analyst
Alex studied Information Sciences at Penn State. After working for a large, large, large company as a public sector consultant, he decided being platinum on US Air and getting more holiday cards from hotels than people wasn’t for him.

Natalie Cross Administrative Coordinator
Natalie graduated Rutgers University earning degrees in Communication and American Studies. During her 4 year stint in New Jersey, she hosted the wildly popular radio show, Disco Monkey, on the wildly popular radio station, 90.3 The Core. In her free time you can find her laughing at her own jokes, whistling, and talking smack on the dodgeball court.
Andrew Hill Account Executive
Andrew studied Political Science at Penn with the intention of going to law school. Then he realized that he didn't actually want to be a lawyer, he just wanted to be Jack McCoy. When Andrew encounters a group of numbers he adds up the individual digits to see if the result is a multiple of 9. He didn't discover this was odd until several years ago, and he blames this on the fact that he was homeschooled as a child. Andrew's life goal is to appear on Jeopardy and win. When he was 6 years old he met Wes Unseld in a Price Club. He and his wife live happily together in West Philadelphia.
Leah Ard Account Executive
Leah picked her college major out of a hat. She got civil engineering which she went on to study at Temple University. Today she helps people figure out how to use data, instead of hats, to make important business decisions. In her free time Leah enjoys yoga, skiing in the Rockies, checking out Philly's awesome restaurant scene, and birdwatching. In fact, Leah is RJMetrics' first amateur ornithologist.
Tucker McDonald Account Manager
Tucker graduated from Roanoke College with a degree in International Relations. After many moves around the country growing up, time spent overseas after school, and a couple quick years in Washington D.C., he was drawn back to Philadelphia and its growing startup scene. When not helping awesome SaaS and Ecommerce companies make data-driven decisions, Tucker can be found in his kitchen creating new concoctions for his future restaurants, or planning on how to become a racecar driver.
Henry Hund Marketing Operations Lead
Henry has degrees in finance and technology from Penn State and an MBA from Wharton. He won a statewide award for best data-driven website design when he was a senior in high school, right after he served time in detention for hacking. After a stint in finance, he decided that focusing on his first passions, coding and data, was probably the right idea--regardless of what that vice principal had to say. When he’s not busy recounting decade-old stories, he enjoys fermenting things (kombucha, beer), eating all the delicious foods Philadelphia has to offer, snowboarding, and pretending to be a hiker.
Jesse Carah Analyst
Jesse studied political science and applied statistics at Washington University in St. Louis where he developed a deep interest in finding creative ways to leverage data to answer interesting questions. Following a brief stint as a freelance statistical consultant in Seattle, he packed two bags and moved across the country to join the RJMetrics team. In his free time, Jesse enjoys playing pickup basketball and barbecuing sundry pork products on makeshift smokers.
Tim Jones Engineer
Tim completed his Ph.D. in Physics at Drexel University. As a grad student, he served as the system administrator for the department and fell in love with the concept of dev-ops. He also won a university essay contest and made occasional contributions to the school paper, including a short-lived comic series about politically-minded dogs. His idea of fun is to ride a 50 mile round-trip on bike to Valley Forge in 90 degree weather.
Eric DeLone Account Manager
Eric graduated from Wharton with a degree in Finance. Prior to joining RJMetrics, he spent four years working at a trading firm in Chicago before making the decision to change careers and move back to his hometown of Philly.

In the summer, when not golfing, you can find him at the Whitebrier in Avalon, NJ on the weekends or by himself pondering the vastness of the universe.
Eli Neuman Account Executive
Eli is a Philly native and studied Risk, Insurance and Health Care Management at Temple University. Outside of work, he enjoys learning about and traveling to new countries but while in Philadelphia takes advantage of the many benefits of city life.

You may also find him dodging the human obstacle course on sidewalks during his after-work jogs.
Andrew Hoagland Account Executive
Andrew studied Economics and Chinese at Kenyon College, and joined RJMetrics in early 2014. Prior to RJ he worked at Citigroup and a start up toy company called Neat-Oh! International.

Prior to joining RJMetrics, he spent three years working in the strategy and marketing department of a local clean tech software and consulting company. On his weekends, you’ll find Marek either renovating properties, playing sports, or fly fishing for trout in the Wissahickon - the creek he grew up on. Marek’s been told that he’s a lot like a yellow lab: a fun-loving, very loyal, and easily distractible Big Galoot.
Johanna Richardson Product Manager
Johanna earned her undergraduate degree in art history from Harvard and eventually went back to school to obtain an MBA from UCLA. She realized that she loved technology while working in a range of positions over the years at Google. While there, she formally bid adieu to her thoughts of pursuing an academic career in the arts. The fact that she was the captain of the math team in high school should have tipped her off earlier that she was really a nerd at heart.
Matthew Bilyeu Engineer
Matthew graduated from Drexel University with a BS in Computer Science. Before coming to RJMetrics as a software engineer he worked for a small defense contractor in New Jersey, building radar simulation applications. He spent most of his formative years killing time on the internet, which is probably where his love affair with technology blossomed. Outside of work he likes reading, occasionally writing, and cell phone photography.
David Wallace Analyst
David spent his last few years working in a Neuroengineering lab at Drexel University, where he used a novel data visualization technique to provide insight into the network structure of spinal neurons. After discovering his passion for Business Intelligence, he decided to use his unique analytics perspective to help businesses make more data-driven decisions. David is the Founder and Organizer of Split Screen Philly and at one point, he was signed to a record label in Japan and (almost) made into the Need for Speed: Most Wanted soundtrack. Outside of work, you can typically find him at some-band-you’ve-never-heard-of’s show or drinking the delicious craft beer of Philadelphia.
Safraz Hassen Analyst
Safraz grew up in Colombo, Sri Lanka and came to to the US to study Economics and Business at Lafayette College. He aspires to be a jack-of-all-trades, and a master at helping clients make better data-driven decisions. Safraz spends his spare time picking up useless tidbits of information, traveling, and obsessing about cricket and soccer. His current focus is on fine-tuning his free-kick technique, though admittedly, the technique might need more than just a fine-tune.
Alexander Mann Engineer
Alex ventured north from Ohio to study mathematics, computer science, and fine art at the University of Toronto. While there, he became fascinated in everything from machine learning and data mining to graffiti and the traditional Canadian sport of politeness. He once stole an ice bar from his own event, ran a half marathon with 10 hours notice, and almost fell off of a mountain. When he's not reading up on different mathematical proofs or going for a run, Alex can be found in the kitchen or in the soup kitchen.
Dan Cho Account Manager
Dan is a graduate of the University of Rochester with a degree in Financial Economics. Before joining RJMetrics, Dan dabbled in the worlds of education and management consulting. His proudest accomplishment since moving to Philadelphia is eating a whole Philly Taco. He likes to play sports, try different craft beers, and root for the Dallas Cowboys.
Lauren Hallden Graphic Designer
Lauren studied art and design first at Moore and then at Penn, where she was the first graduate of the Emerging Design and Research program. She is the creator of an online dating text generator that was featured on Slate and a twitter bot that got a shoutout in the Washington Post.

She lives in Philly’s up-and-coming Port Richmond neighborhood in a 90-year-old fixer-upper with her pet gecko, Ox.
Anna Kegler Staff Writer
Anna is from Minnesota, like all the other cool people. She graduated from Smith College with a degree in Latin American Studies and Portuguese-Brazilian Studies, worked in immigration law for a while, went to Penn for a Master's degree in Criminology, and then finally figured out that communications is her true love.

Outside of work, she fights street harassment, writes about PSA campaigns, watches Brazilian soap operas, runs, plays the oboe, dances salsa and bachata, and finds new ways to enjoy glitter. Her principal role models are Mariah Carey, Ugly Betty, and Liz Lemon.
Alex Bergeron Account Executive
Alex studied Business Communications at Arizona State University. Upon graduation, he moved to Philadelphia to find love in a strange place. After working for a non-profit education group and a sales and marketing firm in Philadelphia, Alex is excited to be helping businesses make data-driven decisions.

In his spare time, Nouras has developed a habit of moving house, (voluntarily) changing address twelve times in eight years and across four continents. He can routinely be found eating portions suggested for two people. Not owning a TV is probably the most counter-culture thing he has ever done.
Salvatore Calvo Analyst
Sal is proud to be the first La Salle grad at RJ, where he majored in finance and minored in math and computer science.

He is obsessed with self-improvement and welcomes any conversation about trivia, travel or Eagles football.
Taryn Cooper Account Manager
A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (the City of Champions) Taryn attended The Pennsylvania State University where she graduated with honors from the Schreyer Honors College with a degree in Psychology (no, she is not psychoanalyzing you).

Taryn lives in Philadelphia's Fishtown neighborhood with her husband and their dog, Fitz (also known as Mr.F), enjoys bicycling, watching movies and decorating her late 19th century row home.
Nico Schillagi Account Executive

Jennifer Limb Analyst
Jenn graduated from MIT with a degree in Neuroscience, then earned her Masters in Health Policy from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. When she's not obsessively creating auto-calculating Excel spreadsheets or fangirl-ing over new infographics, she's trying out new Smitten Kitchen recipes, exploring (and yelping) Philly's restaurants with her husband, (re)watching Pixar movies, or playing Dominion or Settlers of Catan. Anyone have wheat for ore?
Bill Zogorski Account Executive
Raised locally in Bucks County (a suburb of Philadelphia), Bill kept close to his roots by attending Temple University. He's an avid skier and occasional jogger who recently participated in his first Broad Street Run, though his favorite pastime might be drinking coffee while people-watching in Rittenhouse Square.

Megan Christian Account Manager
Megan graduated with an Economics degree from Dartmouth College. She is a recent Philly transplant after spending 9 years in Chicago doing operations management & data analysis for a large industrial supply company. Despite spending her post-college years in the Windy City, she is a true Wisconsin cheesehead at heart and proud of it! After devoting her days to being your friendly AM, she enjoys running, baking her latest Pinterest finds (hoping to NOT add to her pinterest-fail board), and calculating her repeat probability of a second flat tire in the same day given that she's already had one... it's currently at 20%.

Our Culture

We apply our focus on data to all areas of our life. We analyze the lyrics of our favorite songs, understand the business models of our online dating sites and try to optimize our commutes. Whether we're talking about work or our personal lives, we are obsessive about the data that drives what we do.

Here is our best attempt at scrapbooking to show you a typical day at RJMetrics.
