Nick is a highly versatile and passionate musician, composer, and educator. Nick’s rich musical background and emotionally infused drumming renditions have led him to play alongside such acclaimed, path-breaking artists including Grammy-nominated artist and songwriter, Carolyn Malachi; jazz harpist, Brandee Younger; as well as The Godfather of Neo Soul, Roy Ayers. Nick has performed as a snare drummer with the DCA Sunrisers (2009), DCA Bushwackers (2011), and WGI United Percussion (2012). He is also a founding member of Berklee College of Music’s first drumline, Berklee Marching Percussion.
Nick currently serves as the Percussion Caption Head and Percussion Arranger at Mineola High School (Long Island, NY). He is also a snare technician for United Percussion 2 and has served as Snare Technician and Battery Coordinator for the White Sabers Drum & Bugle Corps. In light of the fact that Nick considers himself fortunate to be birthed through a well-supported public arts educational system, his focus is to offer a higher level of music education and instruction to underprivileged communities!
