hi, i'm nick jacques.

about me

I'm a cloud engineer currently living in Chicago, IL. I'm originally from Green Bay, WI and attended Michigan Tech in Houghton, MI, where I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Computer Network & System Administration.

I architect, build, troubleshoot, and fix a variety of cloud infrastructure. I have strong experience with public cloud infrastructure as well as virtualization platforms and with the servers, storage, and network that back them.

I'm a technology enthusiast inside and outside of work. Some of my extracurriculars — photography, video & audio editing, and simply learning new things are all made possible through technology.


I'm always seeking to develop new skills and hone existing ones.
