        Matthew Bell - Sgt U.S. Army (Ret.)
        I've known Nick for several years and a tour in Afghanistan. As long as I've known him, Nick has been a hard worker that always completed his tasks in a timely manner. He's very knowledgeable in the software development field and is always looking to expand upon his litany of language knowledge to other coding languages, techniques and best practices.
