Nick was born and raised in the Finger Lakes region of New York where each day was a new adventure. Whether it was skateboarding and building jumps, hiking, kayaking, or snowboarding, the ultimate goal was to be outside. When it came time to finally leave New York, Nick moved to Vermont where he graduated from Saint Michael's College in 2014 with an Environmental Studies and Studio Art Degree. Afterwards, Nick stayed in Vermont doing what Vermonters do best: Eating really good food, rocking flannels, growing beards, and getting lost outdoors! Now it's time for new adventures, and Nick's main goal is to encourage outdoor newcomers and veterans alike to take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!
