Nic was born and raised in Venice, California. He came up through the AD department on films such as The Hurt Locker, Whiplash, Hell or High Water, and Wind River. The independent film directors he collaborated with noticed his keen eye and sense of editorial rhythm and soon entrusted him with stunts, inserts and VFX elements.
Today Nic is a second unit director specializing in aerial and aquatic stunt sequences. His background as a first assistant director provides the foundation necessary to schedule and execute his shots efficiently and safely while never compromising the artistic vision.
If he’s not directing second unit, a commercial, or music video, you’ll likely find Nic on an adventure with his sidekick Indie the dog or cooking a dinner party for his family and friends back in Los Angeles.
