Current Mustache Status: [No Mustache]
Nick is a designer and photographer based in Austin, TX, and absolutely hates talking in the third person. He’s currently a freelance photographer in Austin, TX and has worked with notable clients such as Texas Football, Fox Sports, ESPN, Carrie Underwood, Jon Bellion, Dell, W Austin Hotels, Garrison Bros., Texas Standard and League of Rebels.
Growing up, I was a doodler. I wasn’t very good though (there was this kid named Tyler in my kindergarten class that could draw well and subsequently, got all the girls). I took on LEGOs at a young age, and you bet your limited client budget I was good with those. Skip to around 5th grade, I began to teach myself a little program known as Photoshop 7.0 on a Mac G5 Tower that crashed every 10 minutes due to faulty RAM. YouTubing “cool photoshop tutorials” and clicking on whichever video had the best thumbnail led to where I am today–an obsessive photographer, designer, artist, creative, want-to-be stand-up comedian who enjoys making really cool work.
