About Randy

Randy NicholasHello there! I thought it would be appropriate to tell you a little about myself, your web developer. My name is Randy Nicholas and I am from Tennessee. I am in my mid 50’s and have been doing web design and development for over 15 years. Read the bullet points below to get a better idea about who I am.

Technical

  • Over the years I worked mostly as an independent contractor but for a few years I worked for an IT company in West Tennessee.
  • I have experience managing Linux web servers (different flavors), email systems, and anti-Spam systems (Barracuda).
  • I have experience working with Microsoft servers, SharePoint, and Office.
  • I also am a certified PC technician with a lot of experience providing remote desktop support and network support.
  • I do my own graphics work and some simple video work.
  • Specifically concerning web development, over the years I have designed or redesigned dozens of sites. Most of these sites were developed for small to medium sized businesses or non-profits, churches, etc. I will be happy to discuss specific projects if you’d like. Just contact me here.

Personal

  • I hope this isn’t offensive to anyone but I also want to you to know about my core beliefs and what makes me tick, so to speak.
  • I am a Christian… a believer in and follower of Jesus Christ. I am Baptist and a former missionary with the International Mission Board (IMB). My wife and I served in Central & Eastern Europe. Overseas, I served in two ways. First, I was a church planter and ministered to nationals and Romani people in Romania, Czech Republic and Slovakia. Secondly, I was a technical developer and consultant with our European leadership group.
  • I am a family man. I have been married for over 30 years and I have two grown children. No grand-kids yet. We also have a sweet little Maltese dog. She came home with us from Czech Republic.
  • I love to sing, fish, create digital art, and have meaningful coffee breaks with friends. I am also very eclectic with my musical tastes. I like everything from Southern Gospel to the Blues, Celtic music to Americana, Southern Rock to Bluegrass. I actually sing both Southern Gospel and Contemporary Gospel from time to time.
