Nick was born and raised in Baltimore Maryland, a town he takes great pride in. Nick was introduced to bicycling at a young age and grew up riding all over Maryland, from the NCR trail to the neighborhoods around his family house in the city. After graduating from Friends School of Baltimore, Nick went on to study International Relations and Environmental science at Connecticut College. In college Nick was captain of the lacrosse team, a member of the A Capella group, Vox Cameli, and highly involved with the school newspaper. He left Connecticut College with a deep passion for the environment and a desire to promote alternative forms of energy and transportation. After graduation he spent a year with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in St.Louis, Missouri teaching a college preparatory course in a public high school.
Nick is extremely excited to join the Bike Maryland team and to have the opportunity to promote a cause he wholeheartedly supports. Green transportation, getting people out of cars and making bike transportation a more realistic and feasible option for local communities are priorities for Nick as he moves forward in his position. Please contact Nick if you would like to schedule a Bike Maryland youth safety rodeo or adult commuter workshop, volunteer, become a bike ambassador, or partner with Bike Maryland.
