Nathan Hauser

MANAGER OF DESIGN SERVICES Est. 2013 (319) 274-4522

An active outdoorsman by nature, Nathan's passion for web design and sinking his teeth into a variety of projects make him an invaluable member of the Web Design team at Forbin. Nathan's educational background includes degrees from Hawkeye Community College and the University of Northern Iowa, and his work at other area agencies brought him to Forbin with a well rounded skillset. Nathan's zeal for whatever project he's working on – full websites, updates or social media branding – allow him to do something unique every day. He loves coming up with out-of-the-box solutions to bring a product or service to life. This passion extends outside the office as Nathan has many interests and hobbies (take a big breath): camping, hiking, running, lifting weights, shooting pistols, leathermaking, inline & ice skating, swimming, long boarding, survivalist training and watching Philadelphia Flyers hockey.
