Here’s a little more about Nick from a recent interview:
What motivates you in your career?
Striving to make my community a better place for my children and leaving a positive legacy.
What trends do you think will shape the future of landscape architecture?
I think urban development of greyfields, demographic shifts from rural to urban populations, and drone technology will be the primary trends shaping the future of landscape architecture.
How do you spend your free time?
I spend my free time with my family, wife, three boys; they keep me busy! But solitary, I like to read, learn, paint, and do backyard astronomy.
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
Undefined and unclear expectations. And each weekly Walking Dead cliffhanger!
What’s your favorite genre of music?
I like all genres, but bluegrass and old-school country music are my favorite.
Cake or ice cream?
Yes. If I had to pick, cookie dough ice cream.
What’s one thing you can’t resist?
Anything the color green!
