Nathan King

Nathan King works full time as a Marketing Manager for ULC Robotics, a company that provides products and services to natural gas utilities. As a kid, he had a reoccuring dream of opening the Sears holiday catalog, finding the Transformers section and being able to reach inside the catalog to grab Soundwave (which was the best Transformer in his opinion). In college, he discovered the joy of eBay and was finally able to have a real Soundwave.

Nathan brings six years of experience working as a Digital Strategist at a New York-based advertising agency after working for five years as the President of Nathan King Design. He lives with his wife and son, who all enjoy travelling.
