Nick possesses what might be best described as a pure heart. He makes time for many philanthropic pursuits; a particular focus is the necessity of enlarging resources for disadvantaged children. His commitment to the issue led him to become an ambassador and brand strategist for Kids Vision for Life, a charity that offers the children of low-income families the funds to purchase eyeglasses, yielding measurable improvement in academic performance. Additionally, he currently sits on the advisory board of Veterans Institute for Film and Media, an offshoot of Dallas Film devoted to the retraining of vets for careers in film and media.First and foremost, Nick is a devoted husband and father of two.
