Nick has been a life long outdoor enthusiast who’s roots began in Sharon Center, Ohio. He was introduced to the great outdoors, first by his mother and father, spending time hiking, hunting, and fishing. Then, he learned to ski! Everything in his life began to go downhill and down stream via skis and kayaks. These opportunities allowed him to compete in kayak races and ski races, while he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Education, from Kent State University.
