My name is Nicholas (he/him). I’ve recently completed my BA Honours in History with a minor in Drama Studies. I’m pursuing an MA in Public History with a graduate diploma in Curatorial Studies.

My previous education was as a performing artist, and I worked for a number of years in Toronto auditioning professionally for theatre, film, and television. Having written my own stage-and-screenplays, I’m fascinated by historical representations in popular culture and am working towards a career in dramaturgy or historical consulting.
