Hi! I’m Nick.

I design, code, write, and ideate.

In my courses in the Interactive Telecommunications Program at the NYU Tisch School of the Arts, I focus on creating inclusive immersive experiences. I strive to imbue meaning in the ordinary.

I graduated summa cum laude from George Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in political science and minors in English and journalism. While in Washington, DC, I acquired experience in research and reporting as a journalist. I try to embody the best qualities of a journalist, such as being curious, kind, and detail-oriented. Also, I wavered in and out of the humanities. During my freshman year, my university funded me to travel throughout England to study Shakespeare. Two years later, I returned to analyze conflict resolution in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London.

At my internship at the National Endowment for the Arts, I researched how virtual reality may be utilized as a tool to increase empathy for social and political issues. I entered ITP to experiment with emerging media technology. While here, I focus on user experience design, mixed reality, creative coding, and accessibility technology. I am both an analytical and imaginative thinker. I am fascinated by the methods in which innovative interactive projects may produce strong positive changes on a personal level. In my work, the end user is always at the forefront.
