Nicholas became interested in the Avant-garde ideas and concepts while at art school. He particularly enjoyed film studies in contemporary American film, German Expressionist film and film Battleship Potemkin made by the legends of cinema like Sergei Eisenstein.

Nicholas made his first 8mm film when he was 18 using toy figurines he found around his home and his sister's roller skates. The toys were characters in a pretend war with each other, and the roller skates served as tanks.
Nicholas' goal is to holistically live a successful life at work and home while gaining vital experience as a screenplay writer and actor. Consequently, he wishes to deploy those skills and expertise to see a transformation in the movie industry.
