Nicholas is a Portland native through and through. But although he was born and raised in the city he now calls home, he’s done more than his fair share of traveling, including living in Belize for three months when he was seven and visiting over 15 countries. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Theatre and Communication Arts from Linfield College in 2015, with a minor in Business Management. After college, he gained valuable customer service, team management and sales skills from working for the TSA and Enterprise Rent-A-Car, which he is now putting to use in his current position managing Think Shift’s public workshops. Nicholas has always been committed to the customer experience and how it is created, which he credits to his passion for theatre. He has been doing theatre on and off the stage for over 12 years, which has inspired in him a deep connection with people and the desire to understand what makes them tick. When he’s not working or performing onstage, Nicholas enjoys exploring nature, playing video games with his brothers, and traveling the world.
