My name is Kyla Scanlon. I like math, I like markets, and I like musings.
I actually wasn’t too good at math for most of my life. It wasn’t until college that things clicked for me. Once I learned statistics, my world changed. I still pull out the calculator for most things, but if 8-year old Kyla knew that I was doing math for fun, her mind would be boggled.
I have always been really interested in story telling. That’s why I like markets. It’s like figuring out a big puzzle that will never fit together.
I was a big reader all my life – I would go to the library, get a stack of ten books, and read them all in the week – and repeat the cycle over again. That quickly translated into a love of writing – my first book was “The Little Penguin”. I’ve written a book almost every year of my life, before transitioning into blog content my junior year of content. I’d like to write a (many) book(s) again, one day.
I try to publish twice a month, on a variety of topics. My focus has shifted towards statistics and data science, and I like to put together thought pieces on everything from Tik Tok algorithms to Brownian Motion.
