A former CIS football player with the Bishops Gaiters in Sherbrooke, Que., Nick started bobsleigh as a pilot in 2012 when his aspirations to play in the CFL didn’t work out.

Nick enjoyed a breakthrough season in his rookie year on the World Cup with a strong fifth-place finish in the two-man event at World Championships. He backed that performance up by finishing foruth at the World Cup test event in Pyeongchang, and was in the podium mix throughout the 2018 Olympic year. Nick made his Olympic debut in PyeongChang, Korea where he was seventh in the two-man race, and 12th in the four-man event.

Outside of sport, Nick studied business with a concentration in entrepreneurship, and a minor in marketing. His hobbies include: fishing, camping, canoeing and anything in the outdoors.
