About Me

With an Bachelors in Electrical Engineering and an MBA in Entrepreneurship, coupled with years of product development experience, I found an opportunity to leverage my experience, knowledge and skills to help companies develop their products.  I started Echo Lake Technologies with the goal to coach small/medium businesses, startups and “side-hustlers” create full-stack web-apps quickly and with minimal cost.

I use contemporary development tools and techniques with my customers so they don’t need to pay tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars for a prototype or minimal viable product (“MVP”).  A core pillar to my approach is bubble.is which enables my customers to create customers functional MVP’s quickly without breaking the bank; I’m speaking from personal experience!

I also enjoy creating prototypes and sharing those for FREE.  Check out my Free Resources page and Youtube Channel for more info.

For extracurricular activities, I enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, skiing and  distance running which has included running 3 marathons one of which was the Boston Marathon.  When our kids were younger, I also coached boy’s soccer and lacrosse.

Read What My Clients Say

I met with Nikolai on the Bubble forum. He was knowledgeable and quick to respond to questions I had concerning the platform. I privately messaged him to ask for a private lesson to look at my application more in depth. Through the call he was knowledgeable and informative about how to operate within the platform, and helped me connect some dots that I was previously missing.”  – Andrew Trentor, Owner, Aurabloom Lead Generation.  (https://www.aurabloom.com)

I was shocked by the pricing on bids we solicited for a basic working demo of our product concept.  Nikolai was able to create more functionality, in  less time, at a much more attractive price using Bubble.  While I’d never heard of the Bubble tool before, it enabled Nikolai to deliver the functionality in a month, and we were able to get valuable feedback from Beta customers.  I’m sold!” – David A, Co-founder, Anonymous Startup
