At one of the clinical laboratories that Nate worked at, he had the chance to see a programmer working on a machine that took care of some of the routine repetitive tasks. This experience sparked his interest in programming, so he set out to become a programmer himself. While trying to figure out how to transition from being a medical technologist to a programmer, he found FreeCodeCamp, Codecademy and Udacity, and started teaching himself how to code and attended software development meetups. It was at one of those meetups that he first learned about Greater Sum. After finding out more about the company, he decided that it was the perfect place to kickstart his software development career. During his free time, Nate likes to play soccer, listen to podcasts, learn new things, or catch up on exciting movies and TV shows.
