Nick commenced his tertiary studies at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University, in 1999 under the tutelage of Markus Stocker. After completing his Bachelor of Music majoring in cello performance, he relocated to Adelaide where he began a period of private study with Janis Laurs.
Upon moving to Melbourne in 2005, he was accepted into the Australian National Academy of Music studying cello with Rohan de Korte and chamber music with Igor Machlak. As a member of the Banksia Trio, Nick competed in the Australian National Chamber Music Competition where his group was awarded the People's Choice Award.
The following year he spent a period overseas studying privately with Howard Penny in Vienna.
Nick returned to Australia and became a member of the WASO cello section, a role he very much enjoys. Aside from music, Nick's interests include poker and the little known sport of bike polo.
