Mina Ozgen is a Partner & Director of Product at Aimpoint Digital. She got started with Tableau through work early in her career and quickly dove into community projects like Makeover Monday and Workout Wednesday to accelerate her learning. Mina also participates in the Tableau Community by attending Tableau User Groups and publishing vizzes on Tableau Public. 

On Tableau Public, Mina spends time visualizing data about topics that interest her such as gaming. She spends a significant amount of time visualizing StarCraft II data, a video game. In addition, Mina creates vizzes on topics related to popular culture and current events, such as “What Distinguishes a Good Red Wine?”, “Eclipse Obscurity 1950 to 2050”, and “Norwegian Language Development.”
