Nick has lived a very full and busy life - he started out in the US Armed Forces, then went to school and graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering. He worked in the automotive engineering field until retiring 6 years ago. He also has a first-class FCC license, owned his own plane, and loves flying, boating, and his dearly departed 1930 Oldsmobile.

Nick has raised 10 kids, has 14 grandkids, and has a wonderful wife. He like woodworking, metal working, electronics, and restoring old things.

Some say that he fired Donald Trump, and that he made Einstein edit his Theory of Relativity...twice.

Was working with Bell Labs back in the mid-60's using touch tone to transmit and receive numerical data only using all solid state at the astounding incredible rate of ten characters per second. Also was developing solid state for Teletype that sent alpha numeric data over phone lines also at the amazing rate of 10 CPS. But then it was all mechanical. Also working with IBM on that 80 character Hollerith punch card, also all mechanical, used newly developed silicon photo cells to read them a bit quicker. Then later, fiber optics, another new invention.

Some progress has been made since then. Mom back then said someday a TV will be made in color and will hang on a wall like a picture. She never lived long enough to see this.
