Michael Susylinski Technical Analyst at SaskTel October 16, 2012, Michael worked with Nicholas at Telin Systems LTD Nicholas is exceptionally brilliant. It was a pleasure to work with someone so versed in IT, and very rare to find someone with such knowledge and passion for technology. Ian Patterson IT Consultant at FracKnowledge October 15, 2012, Ian worked directly with Nicholas at Telin Systems LTD Nick's skills were very evident when I worked with him. While working with Nick at Telin he always kept the securities issues current and relevant. As the Information Security officer for Telin, he was very organized and proactive. Nick's scientific hobbies and general technical interests would be a benifit to any business. Arash Eftekhari IT/Systems Admin, currently looking for new opportunities October 15, 2012, Arash worked indirectly for Nicholas at Telin Systems LTD He is one of sharpest IT specialists I have ever worked with. I have had the pleasure of working with him for over 4 years. He gets the job done, even if he has to create the solution from the scratch. He is very good at thinking outside of the box, and leads the way. He is an OpenBSD guru, and he has applied the toolbox philosophy of Unix to a very wide range of IT problems. He has strong hardware/software skills, and I have seen him integrate a wide range of software/hardware components to create a solution. His IT interests are numerous, ranging from real time data acquisitions to specialized medical systems. Sometimes it becomes a challenge to followup what he is doing, as he is a fast thinker, and amazing multi-tasker. In personal life he is into a number of interesting activities, from piloting light airplanes to amateur radio to photography. In more than one occasion, I have put my life in his hands by flying in his airplane. If you are looking for a Unix guru with can-do attitude, he is your guy!
