Nate is an entrepreneur and artist who likes to research and design things, build dog treat robots, and make weird videos. He's all up on:
Currently serving as el presidente of Bolt | Peters, he has overseen hundreds of user research studies for Sony, Oracle, HP, Greenpeace, Electronic Arts, and others. Beginning in 2003, he masterminded Ethnio - the very first moderated remote research app, which is now being used around the world to recruit hundreds of thousands of live participants for research.
Nate gives talks about user experience research and design in both commercial and academic settings, including a recent keynote for the Urban Libraries Council. He recently co-authored Remote Research, a wildly, astonishingly, and creatively-titled book on remote user research. Last century, he worked with faculty at the University of California, San Diego, to create a degree titled "Digital Technology and Society," which focused on the social impact of technology. He also completed a year of communications studies at the Sorbonne in Paris, where he failed every class, and was jailed briefly for playing drums in public without a license.
