Recently completed a B.S. in computer science at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Starting off a freshman studying finance, I found I much preferred spending my time trying to understand Super Nintendo game programming than stock numbers.
After a year and a half of formal instruction in computer science I began working at Intel in California. While there I attended Viking Code School to up my programming abilities, and completed a couple of side projects.
During the summer of 2016 I worked remotely on mySpiderweb with a team of two other developers and the founder. The small team led to a fantastic work experience and I’m proud to have had my hands in all aspects of the application.
I am currently seeking full-time positions in Japan or a remote position with the freedom to move there.

From a user review:
Alice & August, by nic, is something like Dear Esther in its design. We are given a series of rooms to wander between, with each one bringing us a little closer to understanding our relationship to the absent other. Another very interesting choice is the lack of animation: the avatar is a still sprite, sliding through a maze. At times, however, we have to cross a long, featureless hallway and without animation to give us a sense of the passage of time we become anxious. Our anxiety — as to whether time is passing in a meaningful way at all, or whether the game has crashed — mirrors the protagonist’s anxiety after their own life spiraled out of control.
