Hello There

My name is Nick Schwaderer and I currently live in beautiful Cornwall in the UK.

I grew up in equally beautiful Superior, Montana in the United States, where I worked as a local journalist, sawmill employee, and two-term State Legislator before moving to the UK to work full time as a Ruby on Rails engineer.

On my own time I enjoy unique challenges and work, so if you would like to hire me, feel free to get in touch.
