Ryan first encountered an early version of Tableau visiting Pat Hanarhan's lab back at Stanford. Unfortunately he's a Mac user and thus only got to view it over the shoulder of one of Pat's students. Flash forward a few years and Ryan has spent countless hours working with both Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server analyzing people from inside games and to real life stores. As the head Tableau evangelist at Square, he's helped myriad people propel their analyses. Returning from the Tableau conference in Seattle a few years ago, Ryan was fortunate to join in the founding of the San Francisco Bay Area Tableau Users Group (SFBATUG).
