Welcome to my personal page, take a look around to learn more about me and the work I do.

A picture of me.

A bit about me.

My name is Nicholas Horlocker and I have been passionate about computers and programming for all of my life. I first started coding at the age of thirteen and continue to enjoy the art of it. After starting at a technical college for computer programming I quickly became tired with the slow pace of teaching and withdrew a year later. Most of my technical skills have been acquired through unconventional methods and with a great deal of persistence. This has given me an advantage to continually adapt to new and evolving technologies. My main hobbies outside of work involve enjoying the outdoors through hiking and camping.
