My name is Alex Farach and I am a data scientist at Accenture Federal Services (AFS). I help build productive relationships between clients and their data, simplify complex processes, tame wild data, uncover narratives, and deliver information creatively.

Prior to working at AFS I was an Economist with the United States Department of Labor in the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). I have worked on the BLS State and Area Current Employment Statistics, the ETA Unemployment Insurance Program, and the BLS Occupational Employment Statistics.

I live in the Washington, DC metro area with my wife, son, and dog. In my spare time I like to make music under the moniker Alex F.
