We are Tableau enthusiast who are looking to share our knowledge and work with the world and the data community.
We are from a small town in South Florida named Fort Pierce. A small laid back town with great ambiance and awesome beaches for anybody who’s passionate about the ocean! We are married and share a big ball of fur named Pirate Lady, who’s The Data Surfers official puppy!
Our love for adventures and travel brought us together many years ago; and today, our love for data and data visualizations have brought us together to make this idea come to life! We wanted to create this blog to be able to give back to the community that helped us so much in our Tableau journey.

Pirate Lady Conn
Pirate is The Data Surfers official pup! Pirate is an avid lizard hunter and swimmer; no lizard can escape her playfulness. She loves to get brushed every weekday afternoon when Chris and Fio (AKA. Dad and Mom) are listening to the Love Doctors after work. She loves to take walks and jump in the pool whenever she can, but her true obsession is the beach. Pirate loves to wake up at the crack of dawn every Sunday to go to her favorite beach. If you ever catch Pirate at the beach you will see her body surf the small waves but make sure dad is always around and not surfing, if not she will go after him!
