about nick


I was one of those kids who knew exactly what they wanted to do when they grew up...
I wanted to draw and create really cool things for people to enjoy. Pretty much what I do today!

My career has been the product of creative passion, laser-focus, dreaming big, surrounding myself with wonderful people, and a lot of luck. I absolutely love my job and can't imagine doing anything else!

I am fortunate to have worked with some of the most creative companies in the business.
