Nick has been working in the ‘industry’ for the last fifteen years. He grew up in NY where he received a B.A. in Biology and Psychology at the University of Rochester. He was on his way to medical school when he entered a commercial contest with his college buddy, Dave Horowitz, and it changed his life. He put off med school so he could work as a Line Producer and Assistant Director on the feature film, Niche, and then took a little detour to LA so he could pursue an M.F.A. at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. His thesis film, Diwali, won a Director’s Guild of America Student Film Award and he was invited to the Cannes International Film Festival as part of Kodak’s Emerging Filmmaking Showcase. Since then, he’s founded A Matter of Sense Productions with Horowitz, directed several shorts and training videos and recently wrote the book for the stage musical, Beyond Sight, that had a successful run in Hollywood. His popular commercial submission entitled “The Lemonade Stand” was recognized as a finalist in the 2015 Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest. He’s currently a Senior Directing Instructor at the Los Angeles branch of the New York Film Academy. When he’s not on set, in class, or writing, he’s hanging out with his wife and 2 little girls.
