Nick manages several initiatives as part of Food Lifeline's Mobilize Against Hunger capital campaign. Before starting at Food Lifeline in May 2015, Nick spent seven years working in electoral politics, where he learned how to work across and with a wide variety of people, causes, and campaigns. Nick's favorite part of his job is "The people, the passion, and the mission. Getting to wake up every morning and work with an organization that is so devoted to such an important mission, is entirely thrilling. We have such a great group of experienced and smart employees, that we're always learning and trying new approaches to solve old entrenched problems."

When Nick is not at work he can be found working with his aquaponic business (the growing of fish and plants), golfing, hiking, and going on ridiculously long runs. Nick has never heard a pun he didn't like, is a firm believer that good jokes are always worth repeating, and is convinced that there is no problem a good cup of coffee can't solve.

Please contact Nick if you have questions about In-Kind Donations, the Healthcare Initiative, or other capital campaign related questions.
