Hi! My name is Nima and this is my handsome blog. I’m currently a graduate student in the Biological Sciences department at Columbia University, which is awesome because it will bring me one step closer to fulfilling my lifelong goal of creating my own team of adolescent martial arts trained reptiles, which I would mostly use for light housework and when I need someone to pick up a large order of Chipotle. I live in Manhattan, New York, and am therefore desperately broke, but happily full of quality pizza.
When I’m not doing badass science stuff I’m usually programming. I love web development with Ruby on Rails, but when push comes to shove I’ll code in PHP. I’ve written a couple WordPress plugins, and I was the lead developer for Movie Fan Central, the premiere social networking site for people that like movies.
I’m also the lead programmer of FDX Reader, a screenplay reader for the Apple iPad. The app was made in collaboration with the great John August, with excellent design work by Ryan Nelson. The app is available for sale in the App Store, and if you’re someone that likes to read Final Draft scripts on the iPad, you should give our app a try.
To date I’ve written three books, one of which was declared “The worst thing I’ve ever read,” by my mother. It’s cool though, because a year later she read one of Dan Brown’s books and rescinded her decree. I also wrote a Canadian zombie romantic comedy short film titled, “Date With the Dead”, which was produced by Tommy Gushue. The film was all the rage in Newfoundland in 2008.
NimaYousefi.com is made with love. And bleeps and blorps, and other cool geek junk.
