Nick is the first person in his working-class family to attend and graduate from college. He was largely raised by a single mother who worked to give him every available opportunity to succeed.

In this role, Nick works with local, state, and federal law enforcement officials to investigate and prosecute criminal cases primarily related to public corruption, officer involved shootings, human trafficking, mortgage fraud, tax evasion, and other forms of financial fraud.
Nick and his wife Allie, an attorney in the entertainment industry, reside in the historic Rancho neighborhood of Burbank with their daughter, Ella, and their two cats: Liam and Lily. They are expecting their son, Aiden, in October 2022.
