Hi there!

I am pretty new to dist.net but I am slowly growing my team and 
productivity. As chance would have it I am working on a minor in Statistics 
and I would love to help in any way I can.

Please drop me an e-mail off the list and we can talk more about what you 
need and what I feel I can help with.
