Hi, I’m Nic.
My passion is solving problems using technology. My strength is understanding the needs of users and delivering elegant technical solutions that make people’s lives easier. I believe strongly in universal design, with accessibility and performance being critical to well-designed applications and experiences. I started my career developing websites in the late 90s and early 2000s, but I have since moved beyond the web and into developing digital experiences. I have also contributed to the design of physical spaces, including buildings and workspaces.
Happy users are the key to success. In academia, I have employed my skills as a researcher, developer, and project manager to deliver tailored experiences that are constantly evolving. To do this, I work extensively with both internal and external users with widely different needs. My experience and expertise allows me to make educated decisions and bring together teams in an effort to deliver for their users.
As a manager, I create environments that value diversity, creativity, ideation, and speed. I believe strongly in empowering team members to do what they do best; I see my job as removing interference and fostering professional growth. The result? A creative team that launches often.
Outside of work, I play a lot of volleyball, go on motorcycle trips, fiddle with analog synthesizers, and try to find the best espresso on Earth.
