I’m Joe Hovde. I like to write and to find surprises in data. I studied economics and French as an undergraduate and recently finished a master’s in analytics. Now, I work on using data to find, invest in, and support consumer companies at CircleUp in San Francisco.

I created this site to share my work and to collaborate with people.

If you’d like to hire me, work together on a project or ask any questions, please reach out: joe at [this website] by email, or @jhovde2121 on Twitter. I really enjoy hearing from readers.

If you’re interested in the things I write about, or you just want to give me a little shot of dopamine, sign up below and I’ll email you when I write something new.
