About Me

Me, looking happy in the desert.

I'm Nick. I like to build stuff, especially when it's a pairing that leverages computer science to directly solve problems in the physical world. I have experience as a software engineer, physicist, teacher, carpenter, and in an ideal project I get to exercise all these parts of my brain.

    Started at Google 👨‍💻
