Lead Web Application Developer

Nic's proudest accomplishment is his young family of five - with a wife and three children who keep him on his toes. He never knows what's going to happen next and says that makes life fun. He’s very thankful his wife, Sarah, can stay home with them and knows they're better kids because of it.

He also enjoys spending time with Jesus, skateboarding, and eating his wife's creative and always delicious meals. He’s best known around the office for his frequent meals and is regularly asked questions like, "is this 2nd lunch, or 3rd?" Nic loves the laid back atmosphere at TKG because he's probably the most laid back guy you'll ever meet. He loves the diversity of the sites we work on TKG because it's challenging; if it wasn't it would be boring, he says.

Where he gained his web dev skills

Nic built his first geocities website in high school using a 14.4k modem; it took about 5 minutes to drag a photo onto the page. He got tired of how slow that was, so he taught himself HTML and kept going to earn a degree in Computer Science from Stark State. Before joining TKG, Nic worked at FirstMerit Bank as a web developer for over 6 years.
