Outside of work, I am an avid fan of NBA basketball, MMA, soccer, and golf. I enjoy learning about the field of sports analytics and often use this as inspiration for my visualizations.

I have been part of the Tableau community since 2018 and have participated in Makeover Monday and Sports Viz Sunday. Five of my visualizations have been featured as Tableau Public's Viz of the Day. My work also earned 1st place in the 2020 Data VizArt Student Challenge and the 2019 Tableau Student Viz Contest.
