About Nick Bolt

I'm passionate about using data to improve outcomes. I use a variety of tools to achieve this. This includes Python, Pandas, Flask, and Django. Even in competitive powerlifting, data can help improve the results of the athletes competing in the sport. As a competitive powerlifter this can keep me on track of what I need to work on individually. Imagine what this can do in a team environment.

I am always hungry to learn new languages and visualization tools. As a strength coach, opportunities exist in combining strength and conditioning and data science. I graduated from Ball State University with an Exercise Science Bachelors degree in 2019. For business inquiries please email me at nicolas.bolt@gmail.com
