Nicholas has a degree in math and thoroughly enjoys combinatorics puzzles, pinball, analog circuit design, old-school Nintendo and fantasy basketball. In other words, he’s a nerd’s nerd. During the week, you can catch him sweating the details of an em-dash, and on the weekends, you will find him sipping on a nip of Chartreuse, partaking in Portland’s decorated coffee scene and slaving over a hot breadboard. From late October through mid-April, you can find him getting mildly ornery in the nosebleeds at Blazers games. A lot can happen in 0.9 seconds.
