Nick graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in Computer Engineering. Halfway through his program, he was introduced to Python web development and knew right away he had struck gold. After graduating, he worked as a systems technician and programmer, while at the same time furthering his full-stack development by building lightweight Django applications for fun. He quickly realized his passion for creating clean and reusable apps was too great not to make a career out of it. In his spare time, he likes to optimize code to as few lines as possible, camp, and travel along the California coast.
