Nick joined Imagine IT last April as an escalation service technician.  His calm demeanor, super tech skills and witty sense of humor make him a delight to have on our team.  We hope you get the chance to talk to Nick soon.  We’re not saying we hope you have computer issues that require Nick’s expertise…but if you happen to be on the other end of the phone with him, we’re confident he will take great care of you.

Despite Nick saying he’s always been a tech nerd, he started out in the food industry at various restaurants in the Twin Cities area, worked his way up the line and spent 17 years as a chef with his most recent tenure at Pazzaluna in downtown St Paul.  You can imagine how excited the rest of the team is to have a real live chef in our family with our big kitchen!  When Nick met the love of his life, he chose love over the hectic long days, nights, and weekends of being a chef and switched careers!  As luck would have it, one of his best friends is a network engineer and knowing Nick’s nerdy nature knew he would excel in the tech industry.  Fast forward a few years and we’ve been graced with this fun-loving tech dude who loves to cook!  Yay for us!

Outside of work, you’ll find Nick spending quality time with his lovely wife watching Bollywood movies and gardening.  He’s also a board game fanatic playing weekly for the last 14 years and somehow still manages to find time to sing with the Valley Chamber Chorale.

Here are some of Nick’s faves:

Favorite food:  Pretty much anything new.  But up until now, his favorite food is pickled jelly fish.

Favorite group: The King’s singers

Favorite travel destination: So far, Venice has been his favorite, but he and Laura are bucket listing as many National Parks as they can!
