Tom has a background in Environmental Sciences (BSc) and Marine Biology (MRes), working in environmental modelling between the two. He came across the Data School and Tableau in a chance encounter from a university jobs board email and has never looked back since. He is particular interested in sporting data and is excited to meet up with others in the Tableau community since moving to London and the Data School. His previous work included producing maps using GIS software, so he is keen to explore what Tableau can do in this field as well.
Outside of the Tableau world, Tom has a passion for climbing, surfing and diving, previously working as a SCUBA instructor. Also a football player and fan, alongside having a dabble at most sports.
