Nick's journey from massage therapist to web developer is awesome. At the same time, he and his wife picked up and moved to Budapest, Hungary just before the borders were closed during the Pandemic. On top of those changes, he's recently started diving into the world of 3D art and creating amazing pieces of art in such a short amount of time.
We spend time talking through non-linear career development, learning, web development platforms, living and working overseas, and tips and tricks along the way.
