With an analytical mindset and background in both science and education, Lee has a passion for exploring new information, understanding it and helping others to do so as well.

Lee’s natural sciences and education background means that he has long been immersed in the gathering and interpretation of data as a necessary means of testing of hypotheses and identifying scientific trends.  However, he often found himself frustrated when it came to presenting and interpreting his findings – particularly when he needed to demonstrate a scientific concept to a group of disinterested students or succinctly visualise a concept for a scientific paper.  Lee found salvation when he discovered Tableau.  He quickly realised its potential as a tool for creating some unique and exciting visualisation, and its usefulness in engaging the attention of those seeking to understand and interpret new information.  Lee wants to expand his passion for Tableau into the world of business and has set out learn everything he can about Tableau and Alteryx so he can be well equipped to facilitate companies in making well-informed and evidence-based decisions.
