Growing up, Nick was very good at half-committing to artistic ventures. He dabbled in fine art, music and theater. When he applied and was rejected by UCLA’s prestigious Film and Television program, he decided to major in psychology, because it seemed pretty interesting and gave him enough free time to work late nights at the closed circuit UCLA-TV. He produced and directed a wide range of original content, and won several College TV awards.
Upon graduating, he landed a job working for legendary New Line executive Joe Fineman, who had just gone ‘independent.’ Nick worked as his post-production coordinator for such films as Little Miss Sunshine, Alpha Dog, and Pan’s Labyrinth.
He then attended USC’s renowned School of Cinematic Arts, where he earned his MFA in Directing and Editing. He directed a number of short films, music videos and commercials, which played at festivals across the country. Nick wrote and co-directed “One Million Strong,” an artful PSA for the Love/Avon Army of Women, benefiting breast cancer research and featuring Susan Sarandon. This aired nationally and earned him the Panavision New Filmmaker Award.
He has worked as an editor for Hulu’s Behind the Mask, Netflix’s Bad Samaritans, and the unscripted program Wonder Women for Hallmark Channel, which won the Emmy Award for outstanding Travel & Adventure Program in 2017. He has edited commercials and branded content for a long list of clients, including RSA/Cornetto’s “Cupidity” campaign which won the Silver Lion.
