Born and raised in Coquitlam, Nicholas has been long-active in politics in the Tri-Cities and cares deeply about building a better future for the next generation of Canadians.
After graduating from the University of British Columbia, Nicholas moved to Ottawa to work for the Harper Government, where he provided strategic communications and stakeholder relations advice on a number of economic files related to Western Canada.
After earning his Masters of Business Administration from the University of Oxford, he and his young family returned home to the Tri-Cities. He currently leads the public affairs group at a major British Columbia-based manufacturer.
On weekends, Nicholas with his wife Cynthia and their daughter Penelope, enjoy quality time together visiting the ducks at LaFarge Lake and walking along the Coquitlam River Trail. As a family they attend Coquitlam Alliance Church.
In his spare time, Nicholas enjoys running, biking and is an out of practice bagpiper.
