Trevor Grant is committer on the Apache Mahout, and contributor on Apache Streams (incubating), Apache Zeppelin, and Apache Flink projects and Open Source Technical Evangelist at IBM. In former rolls he called himself a data scientist, but the term is so over used these days. He holds an MS in Applied Math and an MBA from Illinois State University. Trevor is an organizer of the newly formed Chicago Apache Flink Meet Up, and has presented at Flink Forward, ApacheCon, Apache Big Data, and other meetups nationwide.
Trevor was a combat medic in Afghanistan in 2009, and wrote an award winning undergraduate thesis between missions. He has a dog and a cat and a 64 Ford and he loves them all very much.
