Hi. I’m Nick. I’m a leader, a learner, an entrepreneur, and a problem solver.

I’ve worked with computers since I was a kid. The first time I was paid for any computer work, I was paid in milk and cookies. Since then, I’ve been compensated with donuts, pizza, Red Bull, Doritos, pepperoni rolls, and of course, more cookies. I eventually figured out how to be paid with actual money, too.

My experience as a computer programmer started with BASIC, so I’m probably broken. A lot of my current work is done in Ruby, but I’ve worked professionally with C, C++, C#, VB.NET, PHP, Perl, Javascript, and more. I have a soft spot in my heart for Fortran, and I think everyone should spend a week coding AI algorithms in PHP just to say they did it.

I founded Kynigi in 2020 to solve recruiting and hiring problems for small and medium businesses. We have an applicant tracking system (ATS) that’s built on the idea of keeping things simple.

I founded Copyedit Mom in 2017 because I believe that good grammar makes the world a better place, and stay-at-home moms have superpowers. Our clients include Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, news services, amateur poets, self-publishing authors, and bloggers.
