Jay Blanco is best known for almost nothing of any huge consequence, but he tries really hard. He also refers to himself in the third-person on this page because evidently it sounds both professional and ridiculous at the same time. 

Jay was born amongst delicious steak and wine in the small Argentine town of Corrientesmeaning currents in Spanishto a stereotypically Jewish accountant/dentist couple. Before you ask, no he was not born IN wine and steak, there was just a lot of it around him.

He is loved by his family, with exception of the youngest of his 3 older brothers. Something about glasses being thrown in the river during a family holiday, though he Jay maintains he was a baby at the time of the incident. Jay has yet to provide any evidence to that effect.

Born a silly-person, he remains afflicted to this day. People familiar to the matter say he's always had the same stupid face; even as a toddler.

Despite this significant handicap, in 2015 he was miraculously awarded a PhD in Physics from Royal Holloway UniversityHis thesis has an incomprehensible title related to particle physics.

Currently works in Japan as a Data...something-or-other, after a short stint as an English teacher impersonator. He's evidently not terrible at making visualizations and creating online data applications. Though he suspects the reason he was hired was for his dashing good looks and above-average coffee making skills.

Due to a mutually beneficial arrangement, Jay will now sell himself out for some exposure: If you're interested in great data science and R related articles, checkout R-bloggers by Tal Galili! It's awesome!
