Nick was born in Mountain View, California, and was raised in San Jose. He left the Bay to attend UCLA, where he studied Economics with an emphasis in Accounting. At UCLA Nick mentored students at Los Angeles elementary schools through programs such as America Reads and Amigos.

As the first person in his family to graduate from a four-year university, Nick is a role model to students. And now as our Student Government Advisor, Nick cultivates a profound sense of community among our full-time and dual-enrollment students alike.

Nick has always centered himself through sport. He attended Piedmont Hills High School, where he wrestled and played golf and hockey. He played hockey at UCLA, and is often on the basketball court or golf course. When he’s not teaching or putting, Nick invests in his family and in the stock market. In addition to his role as an instructor of Mathematics and Economics (and Student Government Advisor), Nick is also SIL's Community Outreach Director.
