After ditching any potential athleticism and Ivy league ambitions early in middle school upon nailing Guns N’ Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle” on Guitar Hero III (expert mode), Nick embarked on his lifelong journey of shredding lead guitar. Early on, Nick got hooked on everything Randy Rhoads from the first Ozzy records and made his best attempt to replicate everything from stage presence, gear, tone, and playing. Nick still chases this Neverland goal and now, he gets to pay tribute to his childhood hero by ripping “Crazy Train” with Kaleidoscope. Even after growing up and realizing that he probably needs a professional day job, the heavy metal guitar is always on his mind. In more recent years, influences include Mötley Crüe, Judas Priest, Every Time I Die, and Pantera. Joining Kaleidoscope at the end of 2019, Nick is excited to expand his musical vocabulary and begin a new adventure.
