A social psychologist with a passion for technology, Nick Gable is a social media and SEO specialist currently working at reputation.com. Nick attended Santa Clara University from 2006-2010 where he studied social and organizational psychology and physiology and ultimately planned on a long, happy career in HR management. However, after graduating and discovering the ins and outs of the 'real world,' Nick realized there was no way he was going to be happy managing someone else's life. So he did some soul searching.
Around the same time, Nick Gable began furthering his interest in computers and technology and started teaching himself search engine optimization and web design. Nick had always enjoyed working with new technologies, and he saw an opportunity to combine that interest with his passion for social psychology in the budding field of social media. 6 months later, in the spring of 2011 Nick got hired as a web designer at Reputation.com and hasn't looked back since. He is now a member of the SEO special projects team where he solves problems for a wide variety of clients on a daily basis.
In addition to working in social media, Nick Gable has always had a passion for physiology, specifically exercise physiology. Growing up Nick was active in Tae Kwon Do, soccer, baseball, cross country running, and mountain hiking. Currently he is a self-proclaimed gym rat and white belt in Brazilian Jiu jitsu, with hopes to compete in the coming months. Mr. Gable also received formal education in physiology while at Santa Clara and uses this knowledge to improve his own health and fitness while also consulting for friends and family on any health and nutrition related issues.
To contact Nick you can find him on any major social network including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Tumblr, or at his own website nickgable.com.
