Nick was born in Safford, Arizona. From a young age Nick was always moving around because of his dad’s employment. He has lived in multiple countries including Mexico, Chile, and Portugal but Arizona is the place he calls home. Nick graduated from Sahuarita High School, near Tucson Arizona. He went on to attend Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University (ASU) with a full ride scholarship and majored in Political Science. He finished after only three years of school and graduated summa cum laude.
In the middle of his college experience Nick decided to serve a mission for the LDS church in the country of Portugal. His mission was a marvelous experience in his life, serving people from Lisbon to the beautiful Azores islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Religion, faith, morals, and family continue to play a central role in Nick’s life.
