A Swedish-American technologist, professor, front-end web developer, and writer, Nic cares a lot about technology, education, and the Oxford comma.
Nic grew up in Skövde, Sweden, where he learned he doesn’t like the cold and dark, then moved to Lafayette, Louisiana to earn his bachelor’s degree in mass communication at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
During his time at the university he met his wife, the Mac and the Internet. A good use of his time, he’d say.
Nic spends a lot of time with his face in a Kindle reading sci-fi, fantasy, thrillers, and history books.
He used to love dystopian sci-fi until he woke up and found himself living in it.
He has blogged regularly since 2003 at The Core Dump.
Saturday afternoons are for barbecuing on his Kamado grill, a.k.a egg grill. Which is awesome—you should buy one.
Nic builds websites for the Cronkite School at Arizona State University, like the site for the annual News21 project, the site for the school’s news bureau and many others. He also teaches online media graduate and undergraduate classes.
Making people comfortable with technology makes Nic happy.
