After his apprenticeship, Chef Nick worked as Chef de Partie for Charlie Trotter and later helping open a small farm to table restaurant as the Sous Chef at Hitchcock in Bainbridge Island, Washington. Afterward, Chef Nick switched coasts and became the Executive Sous Chef at Five Fifty-five restaurant in Portland, Maine. He next returned home to be the Chef de Cuisine at Aerie restaurant and lounge at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. His most recent accomplishment had been the newly opened Hotel Indigo in downtown Traverse City as the Executive Chef. Chef Nick has worked hard to earn the opportunity to travel and has collaborated with some immensely talented individuals.
