Quoc (Tom) Huynh may have only joined Tamarack a few months ago, but he is already making a big impact. In his role as senior data engineer, Tom spends his time increasing the company’s data integration, analysis and machine learning/AI capabilities for Tamarack’s AI product suite. At the office, Tom focuses on problem solving; and outside the office, on raising his two young children. The Minnesota native grew up in the suburbs, moved to the city to attend the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and has never left.
What do you enjoy the most about your role at Tamarack?
I’ve always loved working with data and enjoy trying to make things run more efficiently. I like the challenge of trying to come up with ways to solve problems.
What does life look like for you outside of Tamarack?
My wife and I have been married for seven years and we have a 5-year-old son named Micah, a 3-year-old daughter named Audrey and an 11-year-old 95-pound Akita.
What are your hobbies?
My life outside of Tamarack right now is taking care of my children; other hobbies now hold a lower priority. At home, I’ve been trying to get better at BBQing. I’m still trying to master making ribs. When I get a chance, I enjoy playing intramural softball and football.
What is your favorite season?
My favorite season is football season. I grew up watching the Vikings with my dad.
What is something on your “bucket list?”
I don’t exactly have a “bucket list,” but I’m pretty proud that I’ve completed the Angel’s Landing hike at Zion National Park. I’m pretty scared of heights, so making it all the way to the end was a big accomplishment for me. My fear wouldn’t let me stand up and enjoy the view though. I left my group early and headed back towards safety.
