City you live in: Central Phoenix, it’s where all the cool kids live!

A typical day in my life includes… 

Being a Renaissance man! I have about 6 jobs. I am an enrollment representative at a college, artist, photographer, teacher, landlord, entrepreneur, striving model, and the list goes on…  It can be a lil crazy at times, lol. My days are busy and there is never a dull moment, and I like it that way! I love being productive and challenging myself.

I was born… 

I am and Arizona native and I was born into a strong and supportive family. My mom was a single parent who raised my sister and I along with my grandmother.  Though these circumstances are less than ideal and I am not from your traditional nuclear family, I never went without anything and with the guidance of my mother I am where I am today. Thanks Mom!!!!

My favorite thing about Arizona…

Are the sunrises and the sunsets… They are just so beautiful and some of the best I have seen.

I’m listening to…

Coldplay, Adventure of a Lifetime. I love starting my day off with this song…. They make such great music.

My family…

is simply the best! We come from very humble beginnings and the concept of working hard for what we want is not foreign to us. Like all families we at times have our issues, nevertheless the support and love from them is endless and I am so appreciative to be a part of such a great group of people.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

President Barack Obama. What a cool and influential person as well as an exemplary man! Thank you Mr. President!

One thing I cannot live without…

floss! It bothers me so much when food is stuck in between my teeth….. Dental hygiene is very important for so many reasons.

When I was younger, I wanted to be… 

a lawyer, though as time progressed I realized that I have more creative ambitions such as the performing arts, music, dance, modeling, acting, and so on…. We will see where life takes me… lol.

I’m inspired by…

the thought of being able help my family and friends to do better. Each day I try to be a more progressive Nick than the one yesterday, and that is what keeps me going.

The one person who motivates me is…

my grandmother. She was born in 1919 and has been through some much! Throughout her 97 years she has seen a lot and to this day she still continue to be one of the strongest and inspirational people I know, and because of her I know that with persistence and energy I can conquer anything!

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

all of the hate the people have for each other. I feel that sometimes people get so caught up with all of our differences, that we neglect to see the beauty in all of our similarities…..I am really saddened at times because of this.

The perfect day would be…

just chilling out at the beach in Hawaii, gazing into the sky!

My first job was…

working at a supermarket as a bagger and shopping cart retriever. Ugh! Imagine that job in 115 degree weather!

My favorite escape

is working out and going to the gym. I consider it my time to meditate and if I miss a day I feel like my whole world is about to crumble. Creating art and listening to music are also some of my favorite escapes as well.

My life…

is great, yet a work in progress! Lol.  I have a lot that I am thankful for, but of course I want more. I am always striving to be a better Nick!

I’m currently working on…

thinking before I speak.  I have been victim to saying some things that I shouldn’t have. Doh!

Always…

smile, laugh, and dance, because you will not want to look back and wish you did!

Never…

make judgments on people that you do not know.

Favorite Quote…

“There is nothing to fear, but fear itself!” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Biggest Dream…

being famous…. Why not me!?

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who drive really close behind! Please keep your distance.
