Nick has been with the company since 2016.

He was born in Saint Clair Shores and graduated from Lakeview High School in 2009. In 2014 he earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism with a minor in political science from Wayne State University.

He previously worked at General Motors in marketing support. Before that he spent four and a half years at the Detroit Free Press, assisting with high school sports coverage in the Metro Detroit area. He has interned at the Wayne State University Press and the Macomb County Board of Commissioners.

Outside of journalism, he enjoys writing fiction, painting and reading. His favorite authors are George Orwell, Kurt Vonnegut and George Saunders. He’s bought at least one CD a week since he was 10. During the winter he snowboards whenever he’s able.

He misses his cat Simba, who had to stay behind with his parents.
