As an Instructional Technologist, Nick helps Faculty implement and integrate technology into their courses. When he graduated from St. Norbert in 2014 (BA English), Nick worked as an IT professional at a large printing company in the Milwaukee area for 6 years. Nick thinks it’s interesting how different organizations can leverage similar technologies to meet similar goals. St. Norbert and a massive printing company couldn’t be much more different, but the technology that drives both organizations has so many similarities. Integrating emergent technologies, and maintaining foundational systems keeps Nick busy and excited. Outside of work, you might find Nick at a disc golf course in De Pere or Green Bay. Nick has sung in various groups, like the Dudley Birder Choral, and plays trombone in St. Norbert’s Jazz Ensemble. Since moving into his house and building a deck, Nick finds it difficult to not want to cook on his 22” Weber every night for dinner.
