Who is Nicholas Kouvatsos?
I am an Aquarius, and I enjoy long walks in the restroom.
I was expelled from my mother's womb on February 10, 1984 in the destitute city of Detroit, MI. I've lived in the greater Jacksonville area for most of my life, and though most people who grew up in this "wannabe" big city can't wait to leave, I personally wouldn't want to live in anywhere else (aside from perhaps an island paradise). What's there not to love? We're on the coast, and we have a river. We've got the downtown metropolis, the suburbs, and the country all rolled into one. I think I'll probably be staying here in Jacksonville for the rest of my life.
I enjoy hanging out with my friends any time I get a chance, whether I'm at a bar with Shawn and Christina, out on the water with Prudence and Adam, watching football with Morgen and Heather, having dinner with Frank and Michelle, dressing up in costumes with Brandon and Claire, or watching a movie with James (just to name a few). I love all of my friends, and I appreciate you all being there for me.
Family is also a very important part of my life. I have one of those weird families where my parents are not separated, but I've managed to cope with it. My parents have taught me to stand up for myself, to be a gentleman, and have motivated me to get to where I am today. For that I thank them. I love my sisters and am very proud of everything they've accomplished. Kira has single-handedly raised two awesome kids, and Niah is engaged to be married sometime soon (I think).
Above all, I love my girlfriend, Sarah. Without her, I couldn't possibly be where I am today. We've been dating since August 17, 2003, and in that time we've had great successes in our careers, we've built a beautiful house together, and we've built a strong relationship. She's alway there for me when I need her, she's always thinking of me, and I feel lucky to be with her.
My ever changing career...
For those of you who have known me for a while, you know that I've always been sort of a workaholic. There have been several occasions where I've had three jobs at the same time. Everything from selling cellular phones to unloading and sorting packages at UPS to selling bean bag chairs to web design to cashiering at American Eagle. One thing that has remained constant, however, since June 1st, 2001, was my job at eLYK innovation, Inc. I've worked there for over 6 years. It's been by far my most enjoyable job, but all good things must come to an end.
August 13, 2007 I started a new job at Global Publishing, Inc. Though I loved working at eLYK, I had to start thinking about my future, and this company would put me in a very good position to do that. I don't know for sure yet whether it will be my last job, but I do know that it will, at the very least, be a great stepping stone to get to where I want to be professionally.
I wish nothing but the best for my friends at eLYK, and hope they have all the success in the world. If anyone is in need of website services such as website design, database development, or web hosting, eLYK is definitely the place to go. Visit the website and check out the clients page. Talk to any client they have or have ever had, and they'll all agree that the service is great. A lot of that may have been because of me :), but I'm sure they're still great!
