About Me

Hi, I’m Nick. Full Stack. 10 Years Experience.

I’ve been programming professionally since 2012, and before that it was a hobby. I’m self-taught and constantly learning. I teach over 50,000 students on Udemy, everything from Python programming, to web development, and linux system administration. I’ve had over a thousand reviews, and my average rating there is 4.5/5.

Most of my work is performed strictly remotely, so I’ve had the opportunity to work with people and companies from all over the world.  But I also do work with individuals and companies right here in Nova Scotia.  I’m a home-grown designer and developer, and love working with and for my community.
