His father was a farmer, crop duster, and a soldier of fortune, while his mother nurtured his creative side, being a teacher, curator and historian.

His skills and successes include television producer, script writer, model, and martial arts instructor. His skills include lariat, horseback, dance, jump kick fighting, pistol draw and twirl, stick fighting and weaponry. Most recently, he has become a reality TV celebrity as a member of the cast of the CMT series, “Tobacco Wars.” On the series, he showcases his skill as a tobacco farmer, growing and curing tobacco used in the making of popular upmarket cigars.
The title track for the album was the catalyst for the television series and is a three minute chronicle of Nick’s lifestyle, fast, fun and forever evolving.
