About me

Thomas Nichols

Software Engineer & Web Entrepreneuer

I've always been passionate about solving the problems others didn't even know were problems. In every position I've held, I've found broken models, the missing pieces, and outdated tools that held up the works.

Combining this innate perception with creative, collaborative, and iterative design is my passion. Solving complex, obscure or unknown problems is my goal. If I can do it with software, that's the icing on the cake.
