About

Hey there! My name is Nick Young and this is my personal website. I do web development. I began freelancing in 2008 and dove full force into it when I quit my day job in 2010 to pursue the dream of working from home.

I have done everything from ghost writing tutorial articles about web development to building high quality WordPress plugins. I have done most of my work as a freelancer on Upwork, but recently went through the process of becoming a WordPress Expert on Codeable and passed the tests and have just finished my trial period successfully. It is very exciting for me and I cannot wait to see what it brings for 2018. Right now my specialty is definitely WordPress, but it doesn’t end there. WordPress is a beautiful platform and it involves pretty much all of the current web technologies in order to make great websites. So I have knowledge on all things in HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, etc.

Personal Life

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children, playing video games, and doing programming projects not related to my normal work like C++, Java, game programming, and tinkering with my arduino board. I also like to get outdoors. It is nice to escape the realm of technology every once in a while and go “off the grid”. I live close to Colorado and like to make it up there as often as I can.

I would love to work with you on your next project so don’t hesitate to reach out!
