About Us

Blue Pride was formed by Nick Schmidt, after working for over 15 years in the IT industry. I have worked in all facets of IT, telephony, networking, wireless, and communications infrastructure.

  I got my start in the industry as a teenager, learning and growing from my Father and Grandfather’s company and building on their decades of experience. I’ve always had a passion for technology, even as a child, this resulted in a natural progression for me to learn as much as possible. This in turn led to an opportunity for me to become the IT Director for a medical billing office where I also managed the IT support for several other clinics in the hospital. Once that company was sold, I accepted a job as a senior network and phone systems engineer for a local company supporting, engineering, and implementing all types of phone system, wireless networks, and wired network solutions for 100’s of companies in the PNW and around the world.
