Nik discovered climbing in 2018 while going to school in Boston when his good friend decided to take him with. Big mistake. He is now a better climber than said friend, and said friend pretends that he isn’t mad about it, but it only serves to strengthen their friendship. When Nik isn’t climbing, hiking, or camping, he’s putting that film degree to work by writing and directing short films or performing stand up comedy throughout L.A. After roadtripping cross-country (three times), Nik has finally settled down here and hopes to enjoy all that L.A. has to offer, from tacos to Korean bbq.
