Professional Background:

Nick has been in the IT industry for 30+years, with an accomplished background in design & development, and project management. Over the past five years he has focused mainly on managing a variety of large, complex networking infrastructure and datacenter related projects. Nick is currently working towards his PMP certification, as well as studying the latest SDDC, SDN and hybrid cloud architectures/toolsets from VMware, DellEMC, Cisco – and microservices technologies utilizing/developing API’s, JSON, JavaScript, SQL, Docker and Kubernetes …with a goal of bridging his networking infrastructure background and his software/database development background, to better manage next generation enterprise systems and applications - including self-service, automation, containers and webservices.

Nick has successfully worked with small businesses, large businesses, DOD, public-sector and education contracts/projects. He is just as comfortable hosting whiteboard design meetings with solution architects/engineers, as he is with managing large-scale endpoint deployments with technicians – and he prides himself in providing the highest levels of customer satisfaction through team building and highly organized project management skills.
