Nik trying to hide full mouth in 2023

Professional Solution Architect, Knowledge Engineer and Project/Product Manager and Data & Analytics Engineer, I'm also an amateur linguist and amateur palaeontologist (or maybe just Paleo enthusiast). Currently I am working on consulting on Intranet and eLearning services for No-Hands Apps Solutions. I got my start in Japan, many years ago, and for a summary of that, please read Interview From Japan to North America Reverse Culture Shock.
