About Danielle Nicol

Hello, Neighbor.

My name is Danielle Nicol. I am a native Pittsburgher.  I have two kids and a rotating menagerie of cats.  I’m fond of solving problems with the the internet.  I’m not fond of people who mistake my last name for my first name.

Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers

I was dubbed “Mrs. Pittsburgh Modular” in a Twitter post, which while technically true, can use some clarification.  My husband started Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers in our basement and together we have grown it into a real, live company.  I manage everything that’s not related to the design or manufacture of our products, including maintaining our company website and social media accounts.

Writing & Photography

Much like a five-year-old on a banana-seated bike, life zips by quickly. I write and take pictures so years later I can revisit it and say, “Ah yes, I guess I did do that.” This plan would be foolproof if only I wrote and photographed more frequently.  I’m working on reorganizing my writing so the long-form stuff stays here on my WordPress blog and the short-form stuff is pushed to my Tumblr.  My preferred photography publishing platform continues to be Flickr.
