I'm Nicholas. I'm a designer. If I'm not constructing things out of trash then I'm on the computer creating stuff, mostly for Troupe429 - the CT queer bar I own, designed, & manage with my partner. 

I also love your mother's cookies. When I bought this domain in 2015, I thought I struck gold. It's 2019 and I am still just as enamored. Special thanks to the guy that owns and won't give it up.

I'm available for freelance work, mainly:

  • Anything involving Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, &/or Dreamweaver

  • Event Design & Management, including: collateral (save the dates, invitations, reply cards, programs, on-screen materials, branded merchandise), vendor/talent management, seating, & more

  • Illustrations & Promotions, including: flyers, social media banners & content, GIF's, & more

  • Antique / product sourcing & sale

  • Creative problem solving
