My name's Nick, it's very nice to meet you! I'm a geek, an artist, a dreamer. By day, I teach engineering and computer science at Clark College in Vancouver WA. When I'm not there, I'm often on my bike, next to a sewing machine, standing with a brush in my hand,playing violin, or surrounded by electronic components; often a combination of these! Or laying on a bed listening to music, or spending time with friends and loved ones. A lot of my time goes into creating and sharing things. I do this when I teach, when I do research, when I design. This site is just a place where I can further share some of the things I'm working on. I hope you enjoy what you find here, that it makes you think, react or feel something interesting.
