Nick grew up in Muskoka, Ontario and spent lots of time outside. In his early 20’s Nick moved to Banff for 4 years before making the move to Victoria in 2017. Banff provided ample opportunity to backpack and explore the beautiful natural scenery of the area and Nick now loves exploring the west coast now. Nick loves to travel to new places and meet new people, though he also enjoys being lost in nature and taking in the natural sights of the world.
He is an avid rock, gem and mineral collector and if you ask him about his gems he is more than happy to show you his crystal or rock that happens to be on hand that day. He enjoys long walks on the beach, curling up with a book on rainy days, and has a habit of crying at the end of “The Fox and the Hound” – don’t we all.
