My name is Nikolai Vazquez and I enjoy creating. I channel my creativity through software development, graphic design, and music performance.

Background

I live in Miami, FL however I spend most of my year studying computer science at Boston University.

I currently have a fascination with Rust. It makes writing fast and reliable code very easy. I’ve made some contributions to the language and I’ve also authored some Rust crates.

In addition to Rust, a great deal of my work is made with Swift. I’ve written a few libraries available via CocoaPods.

My introduction to software development was through the open source community. As a result, I prioritize making my code open and freely distributable on GitHub.
