In 2014, Minnesota Opera was changed forever when Dale Johnson and Floyd Anderson hired Nick as the Resident Artist Administrator. Shortly after, he graduated with his master’s degree in arts administration from the Florida State University, and is now the proud Development Officer at Minnesota Opera. Nick is a former operatic tenor that had to quit because he couldn’t grow long extravagant tenor hair; he’s worked at Costco for nine long years, and once held the title of the fastest cashier in the Midwest; he was a former French professor at Florida State, and received five out of five chili peppers on ratemyprofessor.com. Nick prefers red wine in the winter, and white in the summer. He can do the splits and was once escorted out of a bar in Miami for wearing white after Labor Day.
