Nick Serpa

Manual Machine Shop Resource Manager - A machine designer by trade; Nick is versed in Solidworks, CNC / manual machining, and automation equipment design. When he isn't working Nick rides his motorcycle, teaches technical drawing at NCC, snowboards, mentors the Nashua 151 FIRST robotics team, does film / digital photography, runs in Spartan races, and volunteers at Mine Falls Park.


Steve Richardson

CNC Machine Shop Resource Manager - Steve has been making electronics, software and mechanical systems for as long as he can remember. While his career is focused on embedded software and electronics engineering, he furthered his mechanical skills by converting a manual milling machine to CNC, learning CAD, CAM, and machining in the process. You’ll most likely find him pedaling a mountain bike in the woods if he’s not tinkering in the shop or behind a keyboard carefully aligning ones and zeroes.
