Personally, acting has always been about exploration. I absolutely loved creating stories when I was little and going on adventures. I relished time spent delving into my favorite books and films such as, "Star Wars" and "The Lord of the Rings." It was so exhilarating to dress up as a Jedi Knight and go on an amazing adventure. In a sense, my foundation for creative play started quite young.
While in elementary school, I knew I had a knack for acting when I played the drunkard (much to my family's chagrin) in an abridged version of "Much Ado About Nothing." My guy was a hit! It was here that I learned of my inherent talent for performance.
Fast forward a few years to high school, such an appropriate time to really get into acting: emotions are as high as the drama! I discovered two things in my freshmen year: 1) I couldn't hit a baseball, so the freshmen team was not for me. 2) I fit in quite well with the theater crowd. I came to this realization after playing violin in the pit orchestra for my high school's performance of "Fiddler On The Roof." I watched everyone on stage and thought, "I would love to do that." I then went on to audition for the next play available.
From there on, it was history. I went on to star in many musicals and plays throughout my high school and college career. I received a B.A. in Theatre from The College of The Holy Cross and more recently, after moving to New York City, I completed a one year acting conservatory.
Over the past year, I have spent my time auditioning and booking many interesting projects ranging from short films to web series. I am constantly working towards my goals of being a full-time working actor in film and television. I do this by keeping my craft honed through teaching others as well as being taught. You never finish learning, especially with acting. I am constantly vigilant and proactive towards furthering my acting career, on the business side as well as the artistic. I genuinely enjoy the process of acting and teaching because both allow me to do what I love. Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to hearing from you!

Nick is a super talented actor. As an instructor, he can break things down and give meaningful cues and insight. He's encouraging and honest.
Nick was incredibly supportive and helpful. One of the many things he's done for me was when auditioning for TV and film. He gave excellent advice and would not let me give up until the take came out exactly as eye-catching and interesting as I wanted it to be. He guided me and brought out the best in me. He is also incredibly patient! Five stars all the way :)+ Read More
Nick is a creep. In college he would brag about buying alcohol for minors in his theater classes in exchange for “doing stuff with them”. I heard this first hand from him. Other classy moments include kissing a fellow actor against her will while under the influence of alcohol. Of course his girlfriend broke up with him for this, but he just blamed the whole thing on everyone but himself. What a jackass and a serious perv. Also: Yikes. Having your family members make up phony 5/5 reviews with their real names is quite a hilarious move.+ Read More
Nick is amazing both as a person and as an actor.
He helped me with my English as I recently came from abroad and I already feel comfortable acting and using the language. As well as helping improving my communication skills but also helped in terms of acting. He always pushes you to do better and better and the energy that he gives you is great! I hope I’ll have the chance to work with him again because I know it would be an incredible experience!
Thank you man!
Nick was fantastic, he made me feel extremely comfortable in my own skin and helped me delve into an emotionally expansive world outside my own. He directed with confidence that made me feel incredibly optimistic and assured. He was a fantastic teacher. I highly recommend him!+ Read More
I love working with Nick! He constantly pushes you to go above and beyond while being supportive and enthusiastic. He’s truthful in his advice in a way that will not crush an actor but rather help them excel.
I have had the pleasure of working with Nicholas on and off the stage! Nicholas and I attended the same undergraduate university, performing together in a number of shows. As a peer, student, and friend, I witnessed his growth as an actor and intellectual on and off the stage for the four years we attended Holy Cross. Among many shows we participated in their rendition of Sondheim's "Merrily We Roll Along" allowed us to work very closely together, as I played the supporting female (Meg Kincaid) opposite lead Franklin Shepard (Nicholas’s character).
Nicholas is more than dedicated to his art. He continually works hard, learning from his experiences and previous teachers, implementing this into his work and life. He is encouraging and supportive to his peers and those he works with. He is persistent, kind and engaging. As a peer, I never had the opportunity to take a lesson from Nicholas, however, I know he has an extensive knowledge and understanding of the theatre realm. Nicholas’s leadership skills and zealous attitude toward acting make him an excellent teacher to those who have never acted before, and those more advanced looking for constructive and personalized training.
