Maisonlabs.com and this blog were created by Carlos Campana as a way to project his persona into the WWW while sharing ideas. Carlos is a Cuban-Canadian who has been living with his Canadian family in Ottawa, Ontario for almost a decade. He is a physicist/mathematician by trade working towards the transition into a data science career. He's always been a bit of an outlier; he is a Cuban who cannot dance and a Canadian who cannot skate. His Cuban expat friends living in south US and Spain are nearly convinced he must be mentally ill for choosing the Ottawa latitude to settle down. He spends his days doing, loving, thinking and focusing on trying to always tilt the balance away from taking and towards giving.
