Nicolas Brown, owner of Compass
Computer Systems, secured the domain webstriker.com on May 31, 1998. At just 15 years
old, Nick had invested his hard-earned $100 to register the domain name with
InterNIC for two years. During the next year he did web design work for Wolfie’s C.A.R.S.,
Sports World USA, Chiropractees, David’s Church, Winfield Baptist
Church, and Northumberland Christian School among many others.
In March of 1999 Nick was hired as a freelance contractor to do web site
work for Breco Communications in Millersburg, PA.
At Breco he designed a web site for The Gourmet
Marketplace. Three months after his
hire, Breco Communications was bought out by Kocher Enterprises, which
is comprised of three companies: Susquehanna Design & Printing, The Upper Dauphin Sentinel, and The Carpenter’s Shop. Kocher Enterprises employed Nick
under Susquehanna Design & Printing to continue the work that was
inherited from its most recent purchase of Breco.
At Susquehanna Design & Printing Nick was
surrounded and mentored by professional designers who helped him sharpen
his aesthetic senses as well as computer proficiency skills. There he gained valuable
experience using professional graphics
applications such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and QuarkXPress
to name a few.
Venturing a bit into print media design for brochures and flyers, while
fine-tuning skills in web development, he attained a commendable skill set.
Some of the web site work done at Susquehanna Design & Printing
included work for Kocher Enterprises own Sentinelnow.com site as well as
sites for Pennsylvania Family Institute, New York Family Policy
Council, The REACH Alliance, West Shore Oil Company, Harrisburg Oil
Heating Association, Izett Golf, StaffMasters USA, Pennsylvania Pro-Life
Federation, Twin Pines Camp and Conference Center and many more.
Continuing to excel in web site creation, Nick
continued to develop his on-the-side business by doing work for
Biblically Balanced Ministries, Baker Photography, Teen Tech Magazine,
and Massachusetts Family Institute. He continues to
take on new clients, customizing web solutions for each client and producing a product that fulfills and exceeds
each one’s unique needs and expectations.
