We chat with Field Manager Nick about his life as a programmer, problem solver, dream maker, and more! He’s a self proclaimed “Gearhead” who tells us about mentorships, creating moments and emotions with lights, and gives us insight on being in the fancy and professional world of lighting! Also we cover fashion week, transferring schools, and Dracula!
