Paul likes to make things move on computers. He first worked as an animator on "The Last Starfighter", an experience that made him long to build better tools. He then moved to engineering and design, helping to create animation systems and 3D authoring tools at places like Cornell, SGI, Adobe, and Pixar. Tableau provides a fun and exciting opportunity to bring this experience to a brand-new area: data visualization. The challenges are completely different, and it's great to work with leaders in the field to help you see and understand your data.... in motion!
