Nick grew up with a love for the outdoors reinforced through scouting and summers at the family cabin in northern WI. In college, many of these activities were put on the back burner but that didn’t last long. He started guiding for the university as a TA and realized that his passion for backcountry adventure and education would become a lifelong pursuit.
