Nick grew up with his younger brother and younger sister in the same town as Valentine in South Jersey. He was raised by his mom and stepfather. They had a few acres of land and his stepfather owned a landscaping company. Nick and his brother helped his stepfather in the business from a young age, earning their allowance chopping wood or helping cut the grass. They loved to go out on their canoe on the creek that ran alongside their home and Nick played many sports, including football and baseball and skateboarding. His mom and stepfather provided a very loving home and were always supportive of his and his brothers interests. He has a big family in New Jersey so there were always large Sunday gatherings for dinner with lots of laughs.
Nick went to the Art Institute of Philadelphia and graduated with his Bachelors in Graphic Design.
