Bio

In the early days of blogging, Nick built his reputation as a green car and green technology guru — first as the Editor-in-Chief of Gas 2.0, and then as a freelance journalist writing for outlets such as The New York Times, Motor Trend, Scientific American, Popular Mechanics, AutoTrader.com, PluginCars.com, and HybridCars.com.

These days Nick spends his time deep in the world of Robotics, helping traditional industrial robotics companies transition to the modern world of marketing through storytelling, authenticity, thought leadership and passion delivered via content that is engaging regardless of message.

In his relatively short forty years he’s experienced more than the average person experiences in one lifetime. He still occasionally finds time to freelance write and is recognized as a thought leader and influencer in the world of electric cars and robotics.

In this world borders are meaningless and humanity is simply a state of mind regardless of where you live, or even what planet you live on. The ambitious and intelligent can still carve out their bright, shining beacons and receive ample reward for their contributions, but no one is ever left behind.
