Hello, my name is Nick Turner
I would describe myself as having a relatively wide and varied career path to date, ranging from Theatre Technician, Film Crew, Silviculture; I have worked as a Tree Planter, mountain pine beetle surveyor and forest fire fighter in British Columbia and Alberta. During my final year spent in Canada I worked for a WISP in the North of BC, where I went to work on a quad bike or a snowmobile depending on the season, climb communication towers surrounded by beautiful British Columbia wilderness. I was primarily dealing with point to point and point to multipoint radio links and it was there that the “Wi-Fi profession” ball began rolling, assisted greatly by the CWNP certification program.
I spent 4 years working in the UK specialising in WLAN design and gradually working towards becoming a Wireless Networking Professional.
More recently my quest for Great Wi-Fi Design has led me to join the team who are responsible for Great Wi-Fi Design Tools @Ekahau.
When I am not playing with WiFi I enjoy outdoor sports such as cross country mountain biking, skiing (though not in the UK) and paddle-boarding in the ocean and on UK rivers. International travel with work has recently sparked an interest in CrossFit.
