Nick began his career in journalism in the 1980’s as a combat correspondent in the U.S. Marine Corps, attached to infantry and artillery units deployed throughout the western Pacific and Asia. He spent five years in the Corps, and finished his tour as a sergeant at Parris Island, S.C.
He then moved to nearby Savannah, Georgia, where he became a copy editor for the Savannah Morning News in late 1992. A year later, he began as an editorial assistant at Rodale’s Scuba Diving Magazine and worked his way up the ranks to become Editor at Large. While with the magazine, he also served as a territory sales manager and online sales and site manager for the magazine’s web properties, including ScubaDiving.com, for more than 15 years. Nick is among the world’s foremost scuba diving travel journalists and industry experts, and his assignments have taken him to all corners of the globe in search of articles and underwater and topside photos, including Australia, Baja, Borneo, Brazil, Canada, Egypt, Hawaii, Japan, the Maldives, Micronesia, Tahiti, and nearly every island in the Caribbean. He’s logged thousands of dives in hundreds of dive destinations, and his articles and photographs have been published in magazines the world over.
In 2008 he co-founded LiquidAssets.tv, a video production company which has spent three years filming the scuba diving travel television show, “Into the Drink.” He was producer and writer for Season 1 and host of Season 2, which premiered on MAVTV in April 2014 and has been on networks including National Geographic International, Outside Television, and HDNet. Currently, you can watch Into the Drink on Amazon Prime.
In the summer of 2014 he moved to Colorado, where he established a studio in the heart of downtown Castle Rock, just south of Denver. Since then, he’s become quite active in the community, running for town council in District 4, was named Citizen of the Year in 2017, and currently serves on the boards of the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce, Help & Hope Center, and Douglas County Veterans Monument Foundation.
In the summer of 2019, he founded the Castle Rock Artist Cooperative, a 501C3 that intends to connect artists with the community, and bring a vibrant art scene to Castle Rock.
