Nicholas received his Bachelor of Science in Criminology/Criminal Justice from Southern Oregon University. After graduation, he worked for three years for the U.S. Forest Service on an Interagency Hotshot Crew, where he traveled the western United States, Alaska, and British Columbia fighting wildland fires. Nicholas graduated from Gonzaga University School of Law in 2010.

In his spare time, Nicholas enjoys spending time with (and cooking) for his family and friends, golfing, reading, and cheering for the Oregon Ducks.
