Who is Nick?

Hi, I'm Nick. I live in Chicago, Illinois and I've been doing web development for over 10 years. I started out programming in Java/J2EE and moved into Ruby / Rails about 5 years ago. The last couple of years I've put on a number of additional hats and started doing some systems administration as well as jQuery, Backbone.js, and CSS.

I am currently working at BenchPrep and am also a co-founder and lead developer of WisePatient which was acquired by Sharecare Inc. in early 2012.

Some of my hobbies include Camping & Hiking, Astronomy, Board Games, Biking, Computer Gaming, and Homebrewing.
