The power of nature and the transformative experiences that occur there have always been evident to Nick. He started recreating outside as a child in his home state of Wisconsin and by age 14 spent his full summers working a variety of outdoor jobs. Despite his love of home, the draw of the woods and far away adventures kept Nick traveling and working at a variety of camps, trail crews, and anywhere he could breath the fresh air and explore new forests, rivers and mountains.
After finishing his degree in Forestry and Recreation Resource Management at the University of Wisconsin Nick moved to Utah to work in wilderness therapy. Over his nearly seven years there he honed his skills in experiential education and finding ways to help youth reach their full potential, first as a field staff and later as a field director.
In January 2014 Nick moved to Colorado to take over as the Executive Director of Educo Leadership Adventures where he worked up until the successful merger with No Barriers on January 1, 2016. He is ecstatic to continue to help provide transformational experiences to all the populations No Barriers serves.
