My name is Nicolas Scala. My friends call me Colin and so should you.
I'm a Technical + UX Writer at Avature.
I studied International Relations at San Andrés & Edinburgh. I graduated with summa cum laude distinction.
I wrote my thesis about Australian federal politics and migration policy.
Nice to meet you. Would you like to add me on LinkedIn?
I write documentation and UI text at Avature, an HR tech company. We're obsessed with user experience, and we're always hiring.
Before that, as a student, I founded Politeia Blog, a student publication focusing on Political Science and International Relations. I'm still a volunteer editor there, helping students hone their writing skills.
In addition to running the Blog, I designed and ran the website for our parent organisation, Politeia — a nonpartisan group working to get young people involved in politics.
I also helped organise Congressional candidates' debates, and our annual conference with leading academics, government officials and military officers. I helped draft a cryptoasset regulation bill currently under consideration by the Argentine Congress.
I am mostly interested in Australian politics, defence/security matters, policing, technology, and Star Trek, among other things.
I am a top Goodreads librarian in Argentina. If you're an author or publisher, feel free to send me an advance review copy, but be aware I do not always have the time to read ARCs.
