I go by Nic. I live in North Aurora, Illinois with my wife Carly and daughter Rose. I currently work as a freelance designer at home, though I have extensive experience with in-house design teams in higher education. I thrive on people and live to learn new skills that enhance my professional abilities. My work has won several awards in the last few years through organizations like Graphic Design USA and Collegiate Advertising Awards.

My latest endeavors have taken me into video creation and editing as well as motion graphics and three-dimensional design. I'm a member of the University and College Design Association and recently attended a UX workshop hosted by them which further spurred my interest in digital design. I'm also into photography and particularly enjoy a nice Nikon DSLR with a suite of fun lenses.

My wife says I am a nerd. I happily accept that title.
