PHX -> SEA -> NYC. Never one to sit still, Cynthia Andrews embodies the frenetic vibration of the city in which she lives. The road to her current role as a Data Artist at Tableau was anything but linear. Her eclectic background includes a bachelor’s in art history, a master’s in communication in digital media, a stint in journalism as a data visualization developer at NBC, to name a few. In addition to passionately evangelizing visualizing data, she’s also pursuing a [second] master’s degree at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. Oh, and trying to eat her way through the five boroughs.
