About Me

Hi there! I'm Nick and I'm an actor from Elgin, Illinois. Although I danced and sang around the living room with my sister at a very young age, I didn't start auditioning for plays and musicals until high school. My first audition was for my high school's production of Hello, Dolly. I walked in with a fully choreographed rendition of "Put on Your Sunday Clothes." At the time, I wasn't quite sure if the auditor's laughter was a good thing or a bad thing, but I've come to learn that responses in the audition room are often a good thing!...And also that you probably shouldn't walk in and do an entire dance while you sing...Well, at least I was prepared!


In any case, I immediately fell in love with theatre and went on to further explore it in a variety of high school, community, and college productions.

From Hello, Dolly to The Who's Tommy, I couldn't think of a better life than one on the stage. I strive to present theatre as the healing, exciting, thought-provoking, and magical art form that it is.

I graduated from Western Michigan University with a BFA in Musical Theatre. I recently returned to the U.S. after performing aboard the AIDA Stella (AIDA Cruises) and am currently based in New York City where I am represented by Jim Daly with Bloc NYC.
