I’m Nick. I’m an entrepreneur and market research consultant. I’m passionate about branding, bootstrap startups, and asking the perfect questions to better understand the world.

📖 My Story

In 2016, I quit my consulting job in DC to start my own business.

I was 25 years old with a new born at home. I had no savings. Almost everyone told me it was a bad idea, and to be honest—they were probably right.

But it worked.

In 2018, we landed a big contract with Procter & Gamble.

In 2019, we completed projects for SpaceX, Axios, Getaround, Alexander Mann, McKinsey, CallRail, MIT, Stanford University, and the US State Department.

In 2020, we passed $1 million in revenue and surveyed more than 1 million consumers.

Now I’m focused on new things — building new brands that connect what I love doing with real-world problems, and creating instructional content for entrepreneurs.

When I’m not working or tinkering with new ideas, you’ll probably find me playing piano, reading a book, or exploring North Florida beaches with my kids.
