People of Lockheed Martin: Meet Nick
Years at Lockheed Martin: 1.5 years
What is your current position?
What are your day-to-day responsibilities?
I develop technical solutions to complex problems, support the creation of hardware, and provide guidance to floor staff to meet organization objectives.
Can you tell us about how you got into diving?
“Growing up in Houston, Texas has made me quite the city slicker. I spent my time in garages tinkering with engines and hot rods instead of being out in the wild outdoors. However, when I went to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Fall 2012, I started living in Daytona Beach and it forced me to spend more time outdoors. This brought out my adventurer mentality. The oceans cover 71 percent of the Earth, so much is unknown, and the exploring possibilities are endless. Since I have started my career at Lockheed Martin, I have been able to explore the ocean as a scuba diver. I have recently become certified as a cave diver and I plan to continue getting certified all the way to rescue or shipwreck. The greater the certification, the more exploration I can accomplish. The end goal is to one day dive in each major ocean around the world and observe how beautiful underwater life can truly be. I dive because in 50 years I want to be able to say, ‘I can’t believe I did that’ instead of ‘I wish I had.’”
Do you want to be able to endlessly explore possibilities? If so, a career at Lockheed Martin might be for you.
