Nick is excited to join the Central Synagogue team as a LCLJ Educator. He recently moved to New York City after spending three years as a Teach for America corps member in San Antonio, Texas, where he taught high school English and founded the Brackenridge Eagles lacrosse team. Through a combination of academics and athletics, he showed students that hard work and dedication would lead them to excellence, both in their education and as lacrosse players.
Additionally, Nick taught 3rd-6th grade religious school at Temple Beth-El SA, an experience which emphasized the value of being actively engaged in the Reform community, especially in a city with a relatively small Jewish population. While there, he also served as co-chair of the TBE 20s30s group, helping young Jewish professionals to network and strengthen their ties to the Jewish community.
Nick graduated from Emory University in 2015 with a B.S. in Journalism and Spanish, which included a semester spent studying at the University of Salamanca, in Spain. He is fluent in Spanish and loves medieval literature (the older the better). In his free time, Nick is a rock climber, musician, hiker and snowboarder.
