Born in London, England, Nick now lives in Switzerland with his wife, three children, a cat and two petrified gold fish. After studying Philosophy and History of Art in Canterbury UK and a brief spell in radio journalism, Nick started working at the National Sound Archives in London where he first became interested in information management. Nick studied information technology in Geneva and spent several years working in the documentation department of Geneva's Musée d'art et d'histoire. He is currently working as project manager for MusInfo project - computerizing Geneva's Museums.
