Comfy

My goal is to positively impact our world to the best of my ability. I strive to tell stories, excite, learn, and teach in order to help communities thrive.

At Comfy I am the front line to engage workplace innovators within Fortune 500 enterprises. The Comfy technology is the brain child of UC Berkeley Phd's with deep backgrounds in machine learning, IoT, and buildings. We make the office environment evolve to the needs of workers, by using their feedback in real time. (Curious how?)

When leaders invest in their people, workers are more productive, happier, and healthier. -- We spend so much of our life at work...why not be Comfy?

More about me:
In my free time, I'm likely learning or teaching martial arts, rock climbing, wandering in nature, reading a new fiction or environmental book, or enjoying a nice craft beer with live music. Travel is a huge part of my life, having been lucky enough to visit 25 countries thus far.

Cheers all,
Nick

Enterprise Sales Executive
Oct 2019 – Present

Sales Development Manager
Nov 2018 – Sep 2019

Sales Development Lead
Nov 2017 – Oct 2018
Imagine this: a remote employee is visiting her company's sprawling corporate campus for the first time to deliver presentations to high-profile clients and executives. Upon arrival, she receives an alert that her meeting is starting soon, with a link to her calendar invite and walking directions to the appropriate building. The reserved conference room is just the right size for the number of attendees. The lighting and AV equipment are ideal for presentations. The temperature is just right, and if it's not, she can immediately adjust it from her phone. The entire experience is seamless, and she can spend all of her mental energy on impressing her audience, rather than dealing with annoying mishaps.

Unfortunately, even though everything I just described is technically possible, this is not happening today. The workplace experience is broken and fragmented—and for no good reason. There are tons of solutions (app or otherwise) that tackle a specific pain point in the workplace. However, by and large, they're disjointed—they are not connected and they do not inform one another. At Comfy, our expertise is in tying everything together to create a holistic workplace experience and making the scenario I just painted a reality. We build the technology to integrate the physical and digital systems that make the workplace better and connect those systems all the way to the end user.

-Company NameAutocase (by Impact Infrastructure)-
Sales Associate
Mar 2017 - Sep 2017
Now that I have had time to reflect on my time with Autocase, I realize how valuable of an experience it was. I joined this Autodesk seed-funded start-up because I really believed in the mission and the people. Being able to meet and collaborate with professionals who have devoted themselves to justifying a more sustainable world was epic. (And my dad loved that I was using my Cal degree)

Working remote (at least at this point in my life) was not as epic...or the best for my personal growth and happiness. I appreciate bouncing ideas off of co-workers, making friends, going to lunch, or having a drink after work.

A few desires I had going into this role were that I could become confident in my own voice, wear multiple hats, and bring a new idea forward to a changing market. Each day pushed me forward towards these goals because as a 23 year old post-grad I was given huge responsibilities.

I left Autocase after my biggest professional accomplishment thus far:
Pitching on the big stage during Verge Accelerate 2017 to 2000+ people

It was exhilarating, and I hope that I can work back up to similar moments in my career. I thank the Autocase team for all that they taught me. They are going to crush it.
