My Computer is Using 19 GB of Virtual Memory


And all of its RAM

This happens a lot.

Some of it can be attributed to the various Chrome tabs I have open at any given time (Google Chrome Helpers out the wazoo). The rest of the blame falls on the work I do on-the-daily: data science and animation.

Who am I?

I’m Sam Abrahams– math nerd, programmer, and digital-media dude. I graduated from the University of Richmond in 2014 with a B.S. in Mathematical Economics (more statistics, less abstract algebra). After moving out to the west coast, I began seeking out analyst jobs all over Los Angeles. However, as I was interviewing for those jobs, I was given the opportunity to do a short 2D animation for Illumination Entertainment- best known for these yellow guys. They liked my work, and so I became a contracted artist with them. Since then, I’ve been doing animation for my job, while machine learning and programming have become the focus of my studies and personal projects.


It’s been a hell of a year for me, and I have a lot of exciting things now going on and planned for the future. I want this blog to be a repository for people to see what I’m working on and thinking about in the fields of machine learning, programming, and animation. Occasionally, I will try to write detailed tutorials for certain tasks I’ve become proficient at, and at the very least I will share thoughts on the latest hot things.

One post down. Let’s do this!
