Nick Wynja

Product manager, writer, and proponent of the open web

I live in New York and work with a creative team to make a design system to improve the user experience of business software.

To me, technology is most importantly an infrastructure to connect people, ideas, and information so I learned to code and created tools and products for reading and publishing on the open web.

I wrote a book of essays on simplicity and design, tools, writing, and mindfulness.

You can read more about my current and past projects, browse my Github profile, and see my resume.
