Hello! My name is Daniel Pedraza. I'm a public interest technologist,engineer, and entrepreneur.
I call Brooklyn, New York home these days. I am a third culture child, and have lived all over. My spelling & pronounciation are an amalgamation of my journey. Here you can find a synopsis of my career. I refer to myself as a failed astronaut.
Currently, I am consulting for UNICEF as a Data Strategist. Beyond that, I am cooking up a new venture with some incredible individuals! I am also a proud member of the 2018 Assembly cohort at the Berkman Klein Center & MIT Media Lab. We're studying, and looking into, the ethical, policy, and legal implications of artificial intelligence.
Previously, I spent some time serving the United Nations as Data Innovation Specialist at UN Global Pulse, part of the Executive Office of the Secretary-General.
On my journey I have made a mark at: Zenysis (YC - W16), Quid,
a failed hedge fund, and in Formula One 🏎!
