Born in Winston-Salem, NC, and raised in South Florida, Nick and his wife Jen now live in Barrow County, GA.
Nick's career began in South Florida when he and his brother Matt began working at age 6 as models and actors. Being involved in making movies, television ads, print work as children, inspired them to begin training in the martial arts for self defense.
At age 14 Nick received his 1st Dan Black Belt in Tang Soo Do and his family then moved to Georgia. In May 1996, at age 15, Nick and Matt began Twin Tigers classes in a local church and immediately had over 40 students.

Nick continues to make an impact on his students, his church, and his community as his unique and creative way of teaching instills ethics, morals, and respect in his students.
