Data Nerd


Hello, I'm Dee! I am a Chemical Engineer specializing in Data Analytics.  

I've been using Tableau daily for the past couple of years. I love creating visualizations and letting the data speak for itself.

Other than that, I love food, movies rated less than 5/10 on IMDB and escape rooms. I sound like a major nerd until I tell you that my favourite music is Rap. I adore a great view, hate raw onions, and I think that pineapple on pizza is the best combo ever!
