Editor / Essayist / Programmer

Nick Moline

I am the chief "Technology Wizard" of the Lexicon. Over the last several years, I have worked with Steve on bringing the Lexicon website up to modern standards.

Since Episode 16, I joined Steve as co-host of the Harry Potter Lexicon Podcast. On the Lexicon itself, my principal duties include maintaining the servers that host the Lexicon, converting Patricio's fantastic design into a fully functioning site, and continually working on adding new features to the Lexicon codebase. That said, I also make edits from time to time as I finds the time to browse and edit the Lexicon as well.

I owe a lot to Harry Potter. On a Harry Potter RPG website I volunteered and programmed for, I met a young lady named Barbara who shared my love of the Harry Potter novels. About a year and a half later I married her. A few months after that, through connections met on the same site I found my future employer and so I owe my job and my wife to Harry Potter.

Over a Decade later, Barbara and I are proud to be working with Steve and the rest of the great staff here at the Harry Potter Lexicon to continuously make it even greater.
