He believes that combining attention to details, a good understanding of the business processes, hard work and good communication with teammates and product owners are the perfect formula for successful software development.
He became acutely aware of environmental issues in one influential class at high school, AP Environmental Science. This lead him to major in Environmental Science and minor in Geology at UC Riverside.
Working as a consultant for Environmental Health and Safety after graduating college exposed Nick to the world of stormwater compliance. At his previous employment, he worked heavily in the construction field as a stormwater and safety compliance specialist. The opportunity arose for him to start an industrial stormwater division which he took full advantage of, gaining valuable experience building the program from the ground up.
He discovered his love of technology through a passion for music. That desire led him down a diverse career path including audio visual control systems installation, programming and engineering, cooking, night club DJing, box manufacturing, and software development. He has written applications for desktop, mobile, web, and proprietary hardware solutions.
The variety in experience has taught Adam that great teams build great products, no matter the industry, market, or vertical they serve. He believes he has found one of those teams at Mapistry - where pragmatic technology is helping make the world a better place.
