Nicholas was born and raised in Southeastern New York where he developed an early love for drawing and painting. Inspired by the outdoors, he later turned to filmmaking in an effort to document his adventures with friends who were heavily involved in action sports like Skateboarding, Motocross, and Skiing.
In 2008, Nicholas' love for skiing brought him to Burlington, VT where he studied Filmmaking at Champlain College. Here, Nicholas balanced School, Skiing, and Work as he spent 4 years as the College's rental house technician allowing him to further hone his technical skills by managing and servicing the College's Filmmaking Equipment.
After Graduating in 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Filmmaking, Nicholas moved to Brooklyn, NY where he spent his early years working on Network Television Shows for VH1 and MTV. Nicholas then transitioned to Documentary Filmmaking where he spent time working for networks like HBO, NBC, CBS, Showtime, ESPN, and NFL Network lensing projects all over the World in places like Europe, Haiti, Chile, Brasil, Canada, and The Philippines. His experience shooting projects in all corners of the World has contributed a global view that serves as a baseline for the way he tells stories through the lens.
In 2015, Nicholas Lensed the Award-Winning short film "Yikes" which earned a Vimeo Staff Pick, as well as a trip to the Cannes Short Film Corner among other festival selections.
In 2019, his First Feature Narrative Film "By Dawn" was released on all major streaming platforms marking his first release as a Feature Film DP in the Narrative space.
