About Nicholas

I am a professional football coach and part time entrepreneur, hoping to combine the two to improve the future of sports technology. Currently on the Technical Staff at a soccer club in Toronto, I have recently begun to become more involved with the Toronto tech and startup scene. I want to transition my drive off the pitch and into a startup company, focusing on the sports technology sector.

I am currently looking for a developer to help bring my ideas to fruition. I have worked with a developer in the past on this project, making some progress. However, I now need someone who can be committed to working hours on par with mine to make this project reality. I am creating a unique video recording system. I would like to work with someone (or someones) who is accustomed to working with video footage and CMS. If this sounds like something you would be interested, please feel free to message me and I can go into more depth.
