Currently based in LA, Nick enjoyed success in his native Australia, and then around the world. The charismatic Aussie started his TV hosting career on one of Australia’s most popular music programs, Video Hits (Network Ten) and over the years, with his energetic and unmistakable style, he fronted lifestyle, kids and entertainment programs in live, studio and field scenarios. Nick’s sense of fun, irreverence and his ‘up for anything’ attitude made him a favourite with kids in his roles on Saturday Disney, Nickelodeon and alongside The Wiggles, on ABC Kids. His popularity soared as the host of Australia’s highest rating children’s show at the time, Creature Features – which reached five seasons.  

Nick made his U.S broadcast network debut in 2016 in the role of Dean Trainer on the CBS drama Pure Genius. His other TV acting credits include The Beautiful People (BBC2) All Saints, (7 Network), Changi (ABCTV), Pizza (SBS), Flat Chat (Nine Network), Tanya and Floyd (Foxtel) and the long running guest role of Tim O’Connell on Home and Away (7 Network). Nick has extensive theatrical credits and is the co-founder of the Australia Theatre Company.  Nick has also been a guest presenter on Australian radio, and has also released albums through ABC, Warner, Universal and Shock records. 

Nick is popular as an emcee and concert performer in Australia, the US and in the UK. Nick is the creator, producer and host of an Australian talent showcase series in the UK called Sunday in the Apartment and in LA called Sunday in Hollywood. Running for 8 years, it showcased the most exciting established and emerging Australian talent around the world and was supported by the Australian High Commission.  

Nick has created and implemented talent development programs for children’s talent agencies and adult training institutions and continues to consult experts in various fields on presentation and hosting, branding and content development.
