How did you get interested in Data Science?

I took a number of AI and statistics courses in college and quickly realized the joy of analyzing any data set programmatically for classification or clustering. At my current job, I have a lot of freedom to research our data sources and build analysis tools. I've also recently become interesting in displaying those analytics intuitively so that anyone can make sense of the data they have in front of them. This has lead me to more front end development using d3 and keylines.

What is your current job title? 1. Data Scientist, 2. Data Analyst, 3. Data Architect, 4. Data Engineer, 5. Statistician, 6. Database Administrator, 7. Business Analyst, 8. Data and Analytics Manager, 9. Student, 10. If Other, list Job Title here
