A gifted visual artist in his early years, Nick was later turned on to the power of language and storytelling - going on to read English and American literature at Manchester University and specialising in cultural theory. After graduating he indulged his passion for adventure; travelling the world as a bar consultant, opening high end bars and training teams at five star hotels.

After graduating from film school he went on to set-up his own production company where he worked both as a director and later creative director. ‘Maker Projects’ (2004-2020) specialised in commercials and brand films, with global clients including Adidas, Asics, Umbro, Astra Zeneca and DMGT as well as independent luxury fashion brands. Films were awarded at Cannes, Clios and The Drum.

He recently went freelance from Maker to focus solely on his own directing work. Creating some of his strongest work to date saw his recent films for Gaggenau being awarded gold at the German Design Awards.

He is driven by his fascination with rendering in film those peak experiences when our senses open up and we feel most alive. He balances his working life with a passion for Iyengar Yoga, Chen Tai-Chi, climbing high mountains and swimming in cold water.
