Hi, my name’s Marc Reid and this is my blog where I capture notes about data visualisation and in particular Tableau, including posts on new features, Tableau community initiatives, tips and other things along the way.

I’ve been using Tableau since early 2017 and am a Tableau Desktop Certified Professional and Tableau Server Certified Associate. I was a Tableau Public Ambassador from 2019 to 2021 and in early 2020 I was very honoured to be invited to be a Tableau Zen Master.

When not creating visualisations, I enjoy combining travel and photography. You can learn more about my background and interests in this Community Spotlight interview.

You can also find me on Twitter, LinkedIn and Tableau Public.

Thanks for visiting!
