I'm going into my fourth year at the University of Waterloo for Computer Science (graduating in 2021). I've worked in a fairly diverse set of roles: I've been a full-stack web dev, a data scientist and a data engineer. (Oh, and I was planning on being an actuary before switching to CS). I like writing code all over the stack and learning about new tech.
A big part of my life outside of work revolves around sports. For the past two years, I've mainly been playing ultimate, both on Waterloo's club team as well as on a Kitchener-based touring team. I was also able to play with NYU's team while interning in NYC. Here's the only filmed game I've ever played in: the CUUC 2019 game to go to Division 1. Besides ultimate, I continue to play hockey, and during high school I also played soccer, baseball and swam for the school's team.
Before coming to university, I lived in Doha, Qatar for six years. Doha is very centrally located and I was able to travel a lot while I was there: between sports tournaments, service trips and family vacations, I've visited 25 countries. I've also lived in New York for a total of eight months while on internships.
In my free time, I like to write articles. I've published some on Medium but I'm planning on transitioning everything to my blog from now on so I can customize them a bit more. The only common theme shared by the articles is "Things Nick Finds Interesting and Will Sink Too Much Time Into". Hopefully you find them interesting too.
