The desire for cross-disciplinary practice is what inspires him to challenge the status quo, investigating the design process through an integrative scope to optimize the outcome of the built environment.
He is a recent graduate from the University of Minnesota, attaining a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and minor in Landscape Design and Planning. While at the university, Nicholas helped re-establish the National Organization of Minority Architecture Students (NOMAS), where his leadership role elevated him into serving on the MSP AoA NOMA board.
Currently, Nicholas remains active in many committees under the umbrella of AIA Minnesota, including the Emerging Professionals Committee (EPC), Housing Advocacy Committee (HAC), and Committee on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI). As the current Student Liason of MSP AoA NOMA, he hopes to knit the relationship between students and professionals, continuing the growth of a multi-faceted community.
