I’m Wayne, a statistician with a huge passion in statistics education and modern dance. I’ve worked as a professional data scientist in agriculture, social networks, and aerospace.

My current goals are to make useful statistics a mandatory subject in high school education all over the world. There are many reasons why I think this will make the world a better place. Reach out and we can have a chat :)

I’m slowly compiling a statistics concept inventory overtime.
