About Nick

I'm a top-notch developer, architect, marketer and evangelist who is equally adept at spinning code or words. I have 5 years development, 5 years product marketing, and 5 years technical sales experience, the majority of this in customer-facing roles.

I learn extremely fast, communicate extremely well, and am obsessively passionate about what I do.

I'm looking for a partner who can do much of the same, allowing a "total development" process akin to the Netherlands national soccer team. If I go off on a coding bender, my partner needs to be able to handle the sales and marketing. Likewise when I'm building sales pipeline, my partner needs to be able to handle new features and handle support. And we both have to be passionate about recruiting and hiring new people to our team.

I'm looking for a partner who'd rather have met Dennis Ritchie rather than Steve Jobs.

Most importantly, I'm looking for a partner with whom I can discuss how code is becoming civilization and what that means, and what we need to do about.

And finally, I'm looking for a partner who can tell me when I'm being an idiot and going off the rails (though technically I already have, having passionately adopted Node, Mongo and AngularJS for my tech. stack).
