He’s worked in several restaurants including a 3 Michelin Star restaurant called Benu in San Francisco, CA. The Harvard graduate is currently deferring his enrollment in Harvard Business School‘s 2+2 program so he can focus on growing his brand and several ongoing projects.

Nicole has personally known Nick since he interned for her while she was creating nutrition programs for Massachusetts General Hospital and the John Nagle Co. 

As an outstanding intern, he helped her with the Boston Fisheries Foundation‘sBoston Seafood Festival . Since Nick is such a big star now, Nicole likes to remind him that she produced his first video, which is on YouTube.

Nick and Nicole produced their own nutrition video without the help of professionals (we’ve come a long way!) and had a lot of fun recording it. Created for post 9/11 veterans and their families, the video,“Improve Your Mood with Food,”describes the benefits of eating specific foods and nutrients for emotional wellbeing.
