If you want to create a trading system, run a ... morestatistical analysis, develop a pricing model, build a financial GUI, or find a pattern in a sea of data, I may be the guy to help. I work primarily in MATLAB, C#, and Python. On the finance side, I'm a CAIA Charterholder, with an Economics degree and experience at McKinsey & Company. On the technical side, I hold degrees (with honors) in Engineering, and worked at a number of California tech companies through the 1990's and early 2000's. Since 2008 I've focused my work in the field of computational finance. Recent clients have included: a Swiss proprietary trading desk (Energy Futures), a Canadian hedge fund (Currencies), a US asset management firm (Equities & Bonds), a US portfolio consulting firm, a US aircraft manufacturing operation, and several others. For those clients I have developed, backtested, and deployed alpha-seeking trading strategies, automated execution algorithms, portfolio optimization models, user-friendly GUI tools. Techniques have included machine learning algorithms, classifiers, feature detectors, digital filters, matrix-based models, and concepts borrowed from detection theory and signal processing, along with various technical analysis indicators. I've worked with many financial platforms and data feeds: Deltix QuantOffice (C#), CQG API, Bloomberg, Interactive Brokers API, MultiCharts (PowerLanguage), MultiCharts.NET (C#), TradeStation (EasyLanguage), FIX (HotspotFx), ITCH (HotspotFx), etc. I can integrate other systems with MATLAB or Excel where there's an advantage. I've created C/C++ .mex files, VBA macros, Java/MATLAB integration, MATLAB/Excel integration. I've been programming in MATLAB since 1990, and can sometimes get it to do things that others can't. I can also translate or port a MATLAB application to other languages, especially Python or C#. I'm located in Southern California. For clients located within 2 hours, I can drive to meet you (sometimes same day, schedule permitting). I'm also happy to work remotely. I'm a US Citizen and have held a security clearance, though it is no longer active. The foundation of every successful project is good communication. If you have a project that needs to be done well, then let's communicate! less

    I hired Patrick to complete a fairly complex study for my business - we wanted to analyze our pricing model and dive deeper into analyzing our profitability. This wasn't easy - to do each of our customers is, in some ways, unique.... which makes for complex data analysis. Patrick asked the right questions, and guided me through gathering the correct data he needed to perform the task at hand. He was prompt and responsible - meeting by phone for all of our scheduled appointments, was efficient with his use of time, and delivered drafts and finals exactly when he said he would. The end result was an easy to read and understand Power Point presentation of the data analysis and - more importantly - what it means. He gave me specific guidance in terms of the areas our business is poised to grow, and where it could use improvement. My one tip for anyone considering hiring Patrick (or any freelancer) is this. Your experience will depend in a large part on your level of participation. I did everything I was told to do and I delivered everything when I said I was going. I also responded to his emails immediately or within 24 hours. I participated 100% so he could deliver 100%. And deliver he did. I am very happy with his performance.

    Patrick came in late to a project to support an evaluation of a signal processing project and help to determine the feasibility of moving forward with the project given his expert knowledge of Matlab and signal processing. He provided us with a very sound approach to the data set and endeavor within a very short timeline and helped our company deliver on customer's needs.
