Meet Nick Lindquist

Nick Lindquist


What I Do

My name is Nick Lindquist, and I have been a Multimedia Developer with GOEE since December 2016. I manage green screen video production studios at ASU Polytechnic and Tempe, and I manage a team of very talented and clever artists who build all sorts of videos, graphics, animations, interactives, and Extended Reality experiences for ASU Fulton courses, with the objective of improving learning outcomes for all ASU Engineering students. 

What I Did

In 2001 I accepted a position with ASU as a Media Specialist in Distance Learning Technology (DLT), and I have been working full-time in online learning and related technologies at ASU ever since. I also spent a number of years working for the University Technology Office (UTO) where I was part of the Applied Learning Technology Institute (alt^I), and later a member of the University Common Computing team.

What I Studied

I received my BA in Broadcasting from ASU in 2001, and my MS in Graphic Information Technology (GIT) in 2006.

What I Like

My primary hobbies outside of work are CrossFit and meditation. I have found that exercising the mind and body regularly makes everything else in my life seem easier. However, my passion for CrossFit is not my only lifestyle choice that others find highly controversial. For example, I also feel strongly that the Game of Thrones books are better than the TV series. In my leisure time, in addition to reading, I enjoy photography, painting (digital and acrylic), drawing, animation, biking (mountain and road), tinkering with vintage computers, and playing vintage video games.

Favorite FSE Value

Favorite FSE Value

Encourage Bold Thinking! I believe that those who don’t think and act boldly will wind up finishing in the middle of the pack, along with everyone else who lacked the chutzpah to shoot their shot on a big idea. I am lucky enough to manage a team of talented artists, and I encourage them to give even their wildest ideas due consideration. An artist (or an Engineer) who is not bold is irrelevant.
