REFERENCES

"Nick quickly gained my trust as someone that would always tackle every task with everything he had. I was very impressed with the way Nick sought out more responsibility and came through when it was given to him. Most importantly, the quality of Nick's work was top-notch."
-Sean Allen, NESN Producer

"Of all the interns I have worked with over the last several years, Nick is far and away one of the most progressive thinkers in a media landscape that is constantly evolving in ways we never could have imagined and at a rate that continues to blow people away. In my experience, Nick is often a step or two ahead of the curve, as can be evidenced by his personal website, blog and variety of personal Web 2.0 pages, including Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. He would be an asset to any organization."
-Adam Kaufman, Providence Bruins Radio Broadcaster
