Hi, I'm Nick!

I'm a 31-year-old self-taught software developer, wannabe designer, and guy-who-does-businessy-things in sunny Los Angeles, CA 🌴. I spend most of my time slinging code and consuming copious amounts of caffeine on the Cards team at Stripe.

When I'm not working, I have a big passion for open-source software. I draw a lot of my inspiration from the community, and I attempt to contribute back whenever I have an opportunity to. These days, it's mostly in the form of the hayai C++ micro-benchmarking library. Outside the world of tech, my three biggest interests are finance, motorsport, and cooking (according to my scale, not necessarily in that order.)

I'm born and raised in Denmark. In 2017, I immigrated to the States and married my amazing wife. We are the grateful servants to two assholes lovely cats and a highly energetic infant.

I'm an opinionated fella' with a lot of ideas (the sensibility of which are a separate matter...) So, to avoid driving everyone around me crazy, this is my outlet. In other words, there's no strict theme to what you might find here. From time to time, I'm referred to as a grumpy old man, so consider that a disclaimer for any content on here.

If you need to get in contact with me, nick@bruun.co is the place to hit me up.
