Technical solutions on time and within budget

Best practices in planning, software architecture, and engineering reduce technical debt and total cost of ownership (TCO). Agility with attention to detail at every stage saves time & money.

Agile Planning

Effective planning is an iterative process that requires clear communications. Agile planning is one of my core strengths.

Why us?


A selection of past projects and products that I have worked on in different capacities: strategy, product management, software architecture & development.

Note: many of the projects listed were for clients of Forum One Communications


Read a selection of testimonials kindly provided by clients and colleagues with whom I worked extensively on substantial web properties and technology products.

“Nyk’s knowledge of software and the web is far reaching and insightful. He knows the internals of software development, solves problems creatively, and is able to interpret user needs and translate them to technical solutions. A great mix of skills.”

Dave Witzel

Dave Witzel, Director RASA Director of Conspiration

“I always admired Nyk’s ability to quickly create innovative technical architectures. His attention to detail, and ability to understand and solve complex IT problems were great assets to our projects. I also appreciate how Nyk was always willing to share knowledge with his peers.”

América Montañez

América Montañez, Senior Strategist Senior Strategist (Brand, Product, UX)

“Nyk was both strong at programming interactive, database-driven sites and the analysis of the complexity of projects. In addition to being a great technical lead at Forum One, when I was later his client at the World Bank, he showed great patience in the various delays that the project encountered.”

I have a wide knowledge and skill-base that includes, but goes far beyond ‘full-stack’ web application development. This allows me to offer a wide range of solutions appropriate for small and medium-sized enterprises, all the way up to large national NGOs and international corporations.

Web Application Development

Full-stack web application development: HTML5 & CSS3, JavaScript (React & AngularJS) on the front-end, and NodeJS, PHP (Drupal & Wordpress), Java (J2EE & JBoss), Ruby and Python on the backend. Cloud deployment (AWS, Azure, etc.) is easy!

Mobile Application Development

Complementary to full-stack web application development is cross-platform (Android & iOS) mobile application development using: Microsoft Xamarin (C#.NET), Google Dart with the Flutter platform, and React Native.

Systems & Network Programming

The powerful tools of C/C++ that have been the tour de force for high performance systems software for decades have inspired a new generation of safer high-performance languages like Mozilla’s Rust and Google’s Go languages.

Systems Integration

Business growth tends to proceed at a faster pace than the infrastructure designed to support it. As different groups implement systems to support their operations a need emerges to integrate these diverse systems rather than to totally rebuild.

Data Analysis, Integration & Visualization

As the information flow into an organization increases and the cost of collecting data decreases there is a great opportunity to mine data flows and detect meaningful trends. Data mining, analysis and visualization exposes these trends to decision makers

Machine Learning

Whether it is designing self-driving cars, expert systems or recommendation services the field of machine learning uses statistical and mathematical learning models to create predictive and adaptive information systems that learn from a flow of data.


Currently I am working as a freelance technology solution provider, but my long term plan is to expand this business by building remote development and creative teams. If you are a technology creative, feel free to get in touch with me.
