Design. Develop. Create.

I design and code experiences that users

Howdy, I'm Nick. Nice to meet you.

I've been making cool things for the web for over 15 years. From the early days of the web - geocities, email marketing, and flash-based games to NPM, React, Node, and today's modern dev tools - I haven't met a browser that could keep me down. I design with users in mind, take great care to always polish my pixels and skills, because the sites we visit and tools we use should delight us always.

Designer

I love UI/UX - I design things users touch and feel and get giddy about when they interact. It should be obvious and feel good.

What I like to design:

Websites, Apps, Landing Pages, Product Pages, Motion Graphics, Infographcs, Presentations (they can be cool too)

Tools I Use:
  • Pen & Paper
  • Adobe XD
  • Figma
  • Photoshop
  • Illustrator
  • Chrome Dev Tools
  • Codepen
  • After Effects

Developer

I build intuitive user experiences that people want to return to. I love the process of taking an idea and imagining the code.

What I like to develop:

SPA's, Web Apps, Websites, Tools, Products, Complex Interactions, Stories/Animations, Api's & Relational Schemas

Tools I Use:
  • VS Code
  • React (Sometimes Next)
  • SASS (or LESS)
  • Node JS (MERN)
  • SVG (Lotti)
  • Angular
  • JQuery (less these days)
  • CLIs

Thought Leader

I love ideas, I love sharing them, and I love the spark I see when I help someone learn something new or invent.

Some of my experience includes:

Project Management, Team Lead, Functional Manager, Technical SME, Lead Developer, Technical Scoping & Sales

Some Stuff I've Done:
  • PMI ACP Certification
  • MBA Student (1/2 done)
  • ATD-CIC Tech Summit Presenter
  • ATD-ICE Presentation on Tech Adoption
  • ATD-ICE Presentation on 360 Video & Tools

Conference Presentations

I'm a bit of a nerd. I enjoy sharing cool new ideas, techniques, and technologies just as much as I love to learn. The best thing is seeing someone get excited by a new idea. My wife tells me I should be a teacher.
