Tatsu comes from an academic research background in psychology where he researched how exercise can influence the way we think and function optimally. In the spirit of me-search, he is an avid runner, enjoys people watching, and loves to play around with data. He was hooked on RStudio early in his graduate career. Few things give him more satisfaction than producing beautiful, reproducible data visualizations. In fact, he is still wrapping his head around getting paid to talk about RStudio with people. You can catch Tatsu in his downtime cooking up a storm, walking and hiking with his partner and dog, and spending many weekends watching Premier League soccer.
