Hi, I'm Nick

A data engineer and developer currently in Seattle. My specialties are in analysis, intelligence and applications. I'm all about discovering cool new things and making life simpler for people.

I'm currently working on public health projects at the University of Washington, where I got an MS in Information Systems. Before that I worked at the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Dolores Park Law.

Patterns

Things I like to do on the regular are coding, at work and for play, like getting top percentiles on Hacker Rank, also parkour, I'm a founding member of some San Francisco Bay Area communities, and vegetarianism.

Oh, and I'm back writing here and on Medium too.
