A son to a mother who's fought more internal battles than one can imagine.  She continues to teach me strength, and persistence... more than she'll ever know

A son to a father who taught me the importance of respectful competition, looking people in the eye, kisses and hugs, chivalry, respecting your elders, curiousity, and the words, "I love you."

A lifelong learner and student.

A lover of story, in many forms: novels, biographies of history's great men and women, film, and short stories.

A podcaster, who's interviewed hundreds of high performers, such as Olympic athletes, entrepreneurs, neuroscientists, leading sports psychologists, venture capitalists, and progressive leaders/teachers in the future of education.

An Amazon bestselling author.

The creator of The Adversity Pyramid.

Whiskey (and Whiskey) enthusiast.

Aspiring fiction writer.

"We asked Nick to join our team at our recent off site. The goal was to help increase communication and strengthen bonds between team members. Nick facilitated conversation and interactivity around adversity and vulnerability that led our team to share personal experiences and challenges. We walked away with greater understanding of our teammates and as a stronger overall team."-Chris Meade, Co-Founder of Sports Recruits LLC
