Call me Nicolas. I am an entrepreneur and experienced software engineer living and working in Zurich, Switzerland. I hold a Master of Arts degree with distinction from the University of Middlesex, London.

Joining my passions for teaching, public speaking and building tech products, I co-founded Showzone. The venture is creating a new way of delivering in-person presentations with the help of AI.

Between 2013 and 2019, I have been contributing to the unicorn travel start-up GetYourGuide in Berlin and Zurich, where I held the position of Staff Front-End Engineer in the company’s Marketplace and Partnerships teams. Alongside my work, I have been teaching product management and advanced web application development as a Lecturer in the bachelor’s program of the SAE Institute, Zurich, from 2013 until 2022.

My passions are beautiful design and elegant tech solutions. I am adamant about providing great UX everywhere. My joys are dogs, distant travel, impromptu speeches, and space opera.
