Nick has been acting and directing in the Bay Area since 2002. His long stint with the Stanford Shakespeare Society included appearances as Brabantio in Othello, Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet, Silvius in As You Like It, Feste in Twelfth Night, Richard III in Richard III, and Sergeant/Doctor/Murderer in MacBeth.  He also directed Love's Labour's Lost for that company in 2006. In 2009 he revisited that play, performing as Sir Nathaniel in a special project of The Public Theater. Nick appeared in two seasons of Stanford Summer Theater productions including Pinter's The Collection and Night, Molliere's Don Juan, in which he played Sganarelle, and Amy Freed's Restoration Comedy. He also felt particurlarly blessed when he got to work with Rachel Anderson-Rabern in The Cherry Orchard. Some of Nick's favorite dramatic moments have come from his mornings and afternoons running Shakespeare workshops in middle and high schools. He is super excited to be a part of the second run of Tell It Slant.
