Nick was born in February 1991 and was adopted right after birth. His family moved to Bakersfield, California, right after. Growing up black in a predominately white community had its challenges. He is grateful for the experience because he would not be who he is today without it.
After moving to Utah, he attended Timpview High School. He did several extracurriculars, Including lacrosse, football, and theater. After graduating High School, Nick served an LDS mission to the Baguio, Philippines. Where he was one of the first African Americans to serve in the Philippines. During his time there, he became fluent in 3 languages and learned to play the piano. Even though Nick is no longer a practicing member, he respects the Latter Day Saint religion. After returning from his mission, he enrolled at the University of Utah and walked onto the football team. He then went to work for a couple of companies after he was done playing football and was involved in a workplace accident.
Nick is now an innovator/scientist. He is working on finishing a new tattoo ink focused on dark skin and getting bright color tattoos. Being an innovator, he can see how and where to improve systems that most people can't see. That's one of the unique skills Nick brings to the table.
