Nick wrote his first program on punch cards at eleven, the beta release in what has become a lifelong passion for computers and technology. After studying Computer Science and Economics, interest in the emerging field of computer graphics brought him an offer to work in visual design and marketing. Over 15 years he used his computer skills to create in a virtual world what had before only been drawn on paper

Staying ahead of the curve, the World Wide Web in the early nineties was the perfect place to combine his skills; he hasn't looked back since.
