About Nicholas

Nicholas would describe himself as a modern day renaissance man, gracefully floating from one professional endeavor to another as different artistic ventures tickle his fancy and adapting to the needs of the situation as the work comes to him. Currently you'll find Nicholas employed as an instructor for the Grand Rapids Ballet School, as the Social Media Coordinator for Cellar Door Artisan Preserves, and as a choreographer of High School Musicals around the Midwest. As a native of Milwaukee, WI, a graduate of Indiana University, and now a proud Michigander, Nicholas feels that his "midwestern-ness" is a core part of who he is and the values he places on his work. He believes in eating locally, in season, and fresh! Nicholas also believes that food shouldn't just taste good - it should ALWAYS be beautiful. As a former ballet dancer, Nicholas knows the power of beauty and aesthetics to appeal to the modern consumer. Nicholas treats everything he does as a work of art, working with attention to detail, precise artistry, and intense critique. He is an idea man to his core and is always dreaming up something new!
