Nick holds a diverse background of engineering experience. He was selected to participate as one of two undergraduates for R&D on Graphene Semiconductors at the J.J. Pickle Research Center sponsored by DARPA. He finished his Bachelor of Science in electrical and computer engineering with a focus on computer architecture and real-time operating systems.
Post graduation, he worked on the Atom series SoC at Intel and later joined Texas Instruments where he graduated Leveraging and Elevating Applications Professionals (LEAP) program. At TI, Nick‘s roles included developing Linux SDKs, software libraries, and integration of hardware and software for flash-based memory (power on, u-boot, kernel). He also provided customer support across the western half of the U.S for the Sitara AM335X SoC family. He eventually switched gears into cybersecurity, starting Sectify, a small penetration testing firm.
Afterward, Nick served as the CISO & CPO at Restream where he was responsible for leading the cybersecurity roadmap, compliance, and partook in full-stack development.
Today Nick serves as the Vice President & Head of Portfolio Selection at the International Accelerator.
