Rafael Guevara, VP of Merchant Analytics and Visualization, JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Texas, USA

Rafael Guevara is the VP of Merchant Analytics and Visualization at JPMorgan Chase & Co. He uses Tableau professionally to help business teams understand their clients' business performance and personally to pursue his data curiosities related to the weather, public city planning, baseball, and more. Rafael participates in the Tableau Community by attending Tableau Conference, taking part in the North Texas Tableau User Group and community projects such Makeover Monday and Workout Wednesday, and sharing content on his personal blog, Ralph’s Data World

After attending Tableau Conference and getting the opportunity to meet people he had only interacted with online, Rafael started his blog in hopes of furthering these connections and continuing his Tableau journey. His goal now is to inspire other people to take the initiative to become more active in the Tableau community and start conversations that spark learning. When deciding what to blog about, Rafael finds datasets that interest him and spends time digging into them. 

Rafael also creates video walk-throughs to accompany his blogs which he posts on YouTube. He also shares his content on Linkedin and is active on Tableau Public.  

Connect with Rafael on Linkedin, Tableau Public, and on his blog.
