An issues advocacy group originally created by President Barack Obama, Nick first worked with OFA in Chicago in 2007 leading up to the 2008 General Election. He later teamed up with a Los Angeles chapter to work on a wide range of actions, focused especially on climate issues and 2018 Congressional races.


Madagascar semester abroad

Nick spent a semester away from Tufts University to live in Madagascar through SIT, the School for International Training. For almost 4 months, he studied ecology and conservation across the diverse and threatened ecosystems of Madagascar. Living in rural villages and with local families, most of Nick's semester was spent out in the field among the endemic flora and fauna. His final project focused on the prevalence of bycatch among the island's shrimp fishing industry.
