My name is Nick Ray. I code stories.
I believe that open technology can help humanity see the best of itself. That’s why my projects seek out ways to inform the public, encourage positive behavior, and connect people with the world around them. This passion is also why I pursue opportunities to teach others everything I’ve learned, so they can succeed with their own ideas and ambitions.
I currently serve as an adjunct professor for American University’s Digital Media Skills graduate certificate, specializing in dynamic content and developing for mobile platforms, as well as advising the student capstone projects.
My past work spans the emerging digital media landscape, from building and filming an online video blog while following university students through Belgium and France, to developing websites that help nonprofits reach their constituents, to apps that forge new ways for business professionals to connect. In short, I want to use technology to help the world find the best in itself.
With training in filmmaking and experience in code, I blend these professions with projects that are story-driven and focused. I also help others learn to do the same.
Passionate about making the world better? If so, let’s talk.
