Before attending college, Nicholas learned valuable leadership and coping skills while becoming a veteran of the United States Army. Since 2000, Nicholas has been instilling positive change in adolescents.

Graduating with a B.S. from Appalachian State University, Nicholas began to develop his foundation of character education in a traditional classroom setting. Wanting to further his ability to affect the lives of his students, Nicholas began working in the field of experiential education in 2005. It was during this time that he began to appreciate the importance of wilderness and ceremony in the lives of today’s adolescents.

In 2007, Nicholas discovered a passion for working in the therapeutic industry with students.

“My definition of change would be finding the courage to let go of who you are in order to discover who you can become.”

From 2007 onward, Nicholas has had the privilege of working with several of the industry’s leading wilderness school and therapeutic boarding school programs. Nicholas looks to achieve a sense of balance and to maintain a connection to nature in his own life.

Let me share a middle school story…

This one time in Middle School… I was on a family vacation with my dad and my little sister. We were on a camping trip near the Grande River. It was hot and humid and we were floating down the river in a little, yellow raft. Suddenly, we were swept down a cavern, the river flowing fast underneath our boat. The stone wall opened in front of us and swallowed our boat. We clung to the sides as we were suddenly plunged into plumes of steam and down a giant waterfall. All went black. When we awoke, we were startled to see a giant dinosaur roaring above us. We scrambled out of the raft and ran into a cave, the dinosaur chasing us across the strange landscape. He roared with frustration as we escaped. For me, middle school was, truly, the “Land of the Lost.””
