About Nicholas

Hello, I’m Nicholas, a seasoned technology researcher. I love traveling, especially using Couchsurfing.

I’ve worked on or collaborated on projects from all continents across the globe. This includes North America (The US and Canada), Africa, Europe, Asia, South America, the Middle East, and Australia. I’ve led more than 350 research and writing projects for over 100 businesses.

My work cuts across industries and markets. I’ve worked with startups, mid-size companies, and corporations; including Fortune 500 companies.

I’ve been on research and writing teams for the likes of

  • IBM,
  • AT&T,
  • Autodesk,
  • Microsoft,
  • Bloomberg BETA,
  • McKinsey & Co.,
  • Boston Consulting,
  • Accenture,
  • HP,
  • Apple Computers,
  • McDonald’s, and much more.

My research and writing have covered both famous and little-known technology and business topics. I regularly write and conducted business research on topics like

  • Internet of Things (IoT) and  Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT),
  • Augmented, mixed and virtual realities,
  • Big data,
  • Machine learning,
  • Artificial intelligence,
  • Cloud storage and technology,
  • SaaS,
  • PaaS,
  • BaaS,
  • Blockchain and cryptocurrencies,
  • Medical equipment manufacturing,
  • Drones and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs),
  • Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS),
  • Front End of Innovation,
  • Self-drive cars and autonomous land vehicles,
  • 5G internet technology,
  • Smart buildings and smart cities,
  • Connected devices,
  • Intrinsically safe mobile technologies,
  • Cybersecurity,
  • Intelligent robots,
  • Modular mobile technologies,
  • Marketing automation,
  • Workflow and HR management technologies, and many more.

Although I enjoy technology immensely, I’m aware of its side effects. For example, researchers from the University of Virginia and the University of British Columbia suggests that the general population and ADHD patients use smartphones alike.

India Times points out that ADHD-like symptoms, like easily feeling bored when trying to do work requiring some level of focus, or experiencing difficulty in carrying out quiet activities or tasks can be traced to smartphone usage.

Survey has shown that as much as 95 percent of respondents have used their smartphones during social events; 70 percent used their phones while working; 10 percent even admitted to checking their phones during sex. Kostadin Kushlev says that smartphone users spend as much as 2 hours daily using their phones, he says that

“We found the first experimental evidence that smartphone interruptions can cause greater inattention and hyperactivity — symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder — even in people drawn from a nonclinical population.”

In short, you have a smartphones-addicted audience who wouldn’t pay attention to your message.

Microsoft says that our attention span has fallen from 12 seconds to less than that’s of a goldfish. Eight seconds! A goldfish’s attention span is nine seconds.

How do you turn 8 seconds of attention into something worthwhile?

Now, that’s my job.

I’m here to help your business succeed in spite of the noise. I’ll be your ally. I’ll create engaging content that your readers will love, use, and share, and ultimately make buying decisions in your favor.

I’ll write using well researched and relevant statistics, emotionally engaging case studies, and scientifically proven techniques. My writing will be shaped to achieve your most wanted responses consistently.
