An Orange County native, Nick first started covering local government in his mid-teens for WikiNews, before studying political science and journalism in college. After reporting for student newspapers in Egypt, New York City and Costa Mesa, he interned as an investigative producer at PBS SoCaL.

Since joining Voice of OC, Nick has written over 600 articles on numerous government issues. His investigation of the San Onofre radiation leak helped prompt a U.S. senator to demand key records, which ultimately led officials to determine that plant officials installed the faulty equipment despite knowing about key design flaws.
