I'm interested in creative expression, language, games, cognitive science, efficiency, poetry, and other things.
If you'd like to collaborate on something or just want to say "hi" it would be a pleasure to hear from you:
Did you know that 2015 is the Year of Nick? Follow along with — or even join! — my adventures over here.
Previously, I was head of product at Alphaworks, a betaworks-founded platform for investing in startups. Prior to that, I did product at DrawQuest, Canvas, and Ning.
I'm a TechStars mentor, and I organize the NYC Product Sessions, a quarterly meetup between creators and advisors. I also reserve a few hours a week for appointments here.
Here are some of the recent side projects I've released:
- The Prisoner's Keyboard. A creative writing keyboard for iOS. Inspired by an Oulipian writing game, the Prisoner's Keyboard lets you remove particular letters from appearing at all.
- No News is Good News. A Chrome Extension that proactively hides bad news from your Twitter timeline.
- Today: A text adventure in space. Fridge Magnets meets Asteroids meets hidden Markov models. For iOS.
Happy to provide and always seeking recommendations. Here are some recent favorites:
- Molloy, Samuel Beckett.
- The Trial, Franz Kafka.
- My Bright Abyss, Christian Wiman.
I keep track of what I read here.
