Bio

Hi. I'm Nick. I'm a developer and designer with over a decade of professional experience on the web. My approach to development is informed by my background in design and motivated by my experiences as a user. I'm known for my keen eye as much as my technical skill.

I grew up on the internet, and I believe that the best years of the web still ahead of us.

Quick facts

  • I started programming in BASIC when I was 9 years old on an Apple IIe.
  • I first got paid to build a website at age 16.
  • While a student, I designed and built an early Google Maps API application for my university. It still looks largely the same.
  • I employed my zest for animated GIFs and vintage web design in a recent Holiday website for my company. This doesn't look too different from my first websites.
  • I was once told I have a "Beyoncé-grade work ethic."
