Hello! I'm Nathan, a software developer and fourth-year software engineering student at the University of Waterloo. As an ideator and creator of software, I'm also a designer—using design thinking to find problems that people have and creating tools, interfaces, systems and experiences to improve their lives.
I've built tools and systems to help analysts at the Canadian government to make sense of heaps of data, enhanced security for BlackBerry phones to protect enterprise data, prototyped a frontend for a new insurance application at Deloitte's Emerging Tech Hub to substantially faster insurance application experience and built web applications at Delego to seamlessly process online payments. Right now, I'm over at Interaptix helping clients use computer vision and augmented reality to automate and modernize their operations.
