Welcome to seanwrona.com, the official website for competitive typist, archivist, statistician, web developer, and expert Scrabble player Sean Wrona. I am most famous for winning the 2010 Ultimate Typing Championship at the South by Southwest Interactive Conference in Austin, TX in a competition by keyboard manufacturer Das Keyboard. I have also set numerous records on online competitive typing websites, winning the international Intersteno mother tongue championship a record five times for the fastest typing speed in my native language, and the multilingual championship measuring combined typing speed in a combination of sixteen different languages twice. I set unofficial world records for fastest typing over a one minute interval and fastest typing over a 50 minute interval, among many other records on various sites. Additionally, I run race-database.com, one of the larger auto racing statistical archives on the Internet (however, this website has been on hiatus since the end of the 2015 season) and racermetrics.com, a spinoff of race-database where I write columns which invent sabermetric-style statistics for auto racing analysis. I am the ratings compiler and statistician for the Mensa Scrabble-by-Mail SIG and an expert-rated tournament Scrabble player, having won my first tournament at Webster, NY in 2015. I earned a bachelor's in economics and a master's in applied statistics from Cornell University. After a stint archiving box scores from professional sporting events for sports-reference.com, where I most notably entered complete box scores for several NBA seasons, I now serve as a transcriptionist for the deaf. I have been interviewed for FiveThirtyEight.com and occasionally mentioned in other articles.
